I have climbed in 9 forign countries and like S America best, followed by W Europe. I have climbed above 14500 feet approximately 15 times. The highest was Aconcagua. ALL my training has been from the various CMC schools. I am the current director for the Fort Collins CO BMS. I have been active in mountaineering since 1965 and climb rock at the 5.6 level but have free soloed at 5.8 and led at 5.9 but dont enjoy anything above 5.6 Just do it in a pinch. My ice climbing is best described as novice but I can get up big mountains with my ice skills. I am old enough to be your father but I can bust my butt and keep up with you most of the time.
