I live in Oregon and I have a pretty good mountain wish list for next season. Rainier, Baker, Jefferson, North Sister, Middle Sister, Shasta and Whitney Mountaineer's Route. I'm sure I won't be able to do them all, but I want to try as many as possible and I really need a partner or two for most of these. So if you're inclined...
I will be 57 years old, so honestly, that's really my difficulty in finding partners. I'm a typical friend-challenged middle-aged guy, and when I go out with the local hiking/climbing groups, the 20- and 30-somethings who lead just want to show you how fast they are. I'd like a more comfortable pace, so I'm looking for partners around my age.
I'm fit and reasonably experienced, just not as fast as the 20- and 30-somethings, you know?
Please give me a shout if you're interested in any of these. Thanks for your time.
