hi;
I'm a Canadian, born in Czech Republic, and currently reside in the relative lowlands of Ottawa. Mountaineering is one of my several hobbies. Started to do scrambling back in 1991, while living near the Canadian Rockies, and have kept up with my mountain habit since. I am not a serious alpinist; the main point of this for me is to enjoy some fine views and explore new geographies while also getting some serious exercise. I do have, however, some experience...been to the top of over 60 peaks in the CDN Rockies, some scrambles, some moderate alpine climbing, others mere trail hikes, and about 40-50 significant peaks in other ranges (BC's Coast Mountains, the Cascades, Adirondacks, Mexico, Spain, Scottish Highlands among others). I also do some amount of hiking and off-trail scrambling in Quebec's Laurentians. Every year I add a few ascents. Increasingly, I try to take pictures and generally retain the information about routes, conditions, logistics, etc. This is a great forum to view future trip options, gather 'beta' and generally prepare for that next peak.
My long term project is to increase my knowledge of two specific mountain areas in Canada: the Coast Range and the many ranges in the Yukon. I am particularly interested attaining more of the peaks featured in the Southwest BC Scrambling Guide.
