October 22-26 Climb

Postby danieljinsa » Tue Oct 15, 2013 12:20 pm

Looking for a partner or two to do a climb in the range of October 22-26. I've some experience at altitude (Shavano and Ouray in August), but no experience in wintry conditions. I wanted to try one this time of year because it's not quite winter, but it'll be cold, and more of the elements in your face.
I'd be happy to hit Shavano again, or any of the Collegiates. Elbert,or even Quandary as well.
I live in South Texas, so any insight is helpful. Or if any of you want to try something else, and take a mountain climbing newb along, I'd love to join you on an adventure. PM me or or post :-D

Girlfriend and I will be climbing that weekend. I'm sure we'll do something like La Plata, Antero, Torrey's via Kelso, or Decalibron

I plan to hit Kelso or La Plata the 26th or 27th, so a trip report/conditions report would be much appreciated. Kind of hard to see the Colo Mtns from up here in Laramie.

That is hiking, not climbing. Please update the thread title.

You can always spot a newbie when he uses the term mountain climbing :)

Thinking of doing Shav/Tab on the 23rd. If interested, let me know.

Mountain hiking is a vague and nebulous phrase that doesn't properly describe the endeavor to go from a lower point to a higher point. Climbing is any sort of ascent, easy or hard, to a summit or not. The project in question is clearly a climb.

If you do end up doing it on the 23rd, please post a TR or conditions ASAP as I think I'll be heading out there the 25th, weather and conditions permitting \:D/
