I want to climb again. When I was young, i climbed in Italy, colorado and of course in New Hampshire with my father. I have taken my kids up to tuckermans when they were younger and hiked over east and west bald plate in the last year along with Bemis this past summer. I want to get myself in climbing condition again and try winter backpacking with the ultimate goal of getting to the top of Mt Washington. My kids head to college next year. Im fairly wise, at least I think I am but have never done winter backpacking. So im introducing myself and hope to find some friend on here to learn and listen.
