Climbs List

Mountain climbing adventures, to the best of my memory. Climbs are in Washington State, unless otherwise noted. Longer multi-day routes/Traverses are in italics. Climbs with (attempt) next to them were approached but not summited. Technical rock climbing, usually alpine trad, is listed with a 5.rating.

Currently interested in the Bulger List and Smoot's "Climbing Washington's Mountains" 100 peaks. Also on Peakbagger – and here's a peakbagger wishlist.
