Greetings everyone -
I am looking for a mountaineering partner for relatively intense expeditions throughout the state. My fitness level and ambition for adventure have grown such that my friends no longer want to join me on my trips. I am an avid trail runner (30+ miles per week), novice climber (5.10+ indoors, learning how to lead on sport and trad outdoors), and a WFR. I have a few whole day or 2 day mini expeditions that I am impelled to accomplish this winter. I am based in the Phoenix area and I'm happy to meet for a trail run and/or some technical climbing to see how skills and fitness levels match.
