I am mainly a long distance backpacker who loves climbing along the way. I am a very competitive person and climbing gives me a short term goal that I often miss with long distance hiking. My longest hike is the Pacific Crest Trail in 2003 (2700 miles) during which I climbed several peaks, including a night hike up Mt. Whitney to see the sunrise. Check out my journal at if you are interested. As for peakbagging I have done some 14ers in Colorado during my college years, a couple mountains in the northwest, and a few in the northeast where I live now. I haven't done anything technical yet, but would like to work up to more technical climbs. I have a goal to hike all the 14ers in Colorado in a continuous line (the route I came up with is about 1500 miles) which, as far as I know, has never been done which makes the challenge all the more attractive to me.
