I'm new-ish to Seattle too and looking for touring partners. I have avy gear and my level 1 course and have been riding for about 20 years (2nd year splitting, have about 8-10 days touring). Looking mainly for daytrips to get more familiar in the backcountry around Alpental/Snoq. and Crystal, but up for just about anything.

I'm going to be in Mt.Baker this weekend. If anyone wants to meet up and show us around that would be awesome!

Damn, sorry I didn't catch that sooner PJ. I haven't been checking in here. Next time feel free to message me direct.
I was mostly lame this weekend, but could have at least pointed AJ in the right direction. Nomad was in town looking for a serious partner.

Hope everyone got out for some awesomely good conditions this weekend!

MJ.

Looking to linkup for trips. Just had my Burton split by www.sicksplits.com now getting bindings done and kit gear ready. Live on Queen Anne, have Subaru. New to splitting, boarding however since 1987. Look me up, I have a loft up here good for movies and gearing up. I ride longboard skates around the city and have an extra Omen, good for getting legs amped up.

Ryan,

please don't go to meet up looking for partners for anything except socializing. you are safer going solo.

Sorry if I have become less then welcoming to inviting people along lately. It's tough to find parnters with like styles, and risk and exposure preferance and tolerances. I often tour in moderate to high danger, exposed terrain, long days, and prefer small groups of 3 or 4 at most.

the best thing to do would be for everyone new looking to explore the area. which are at least 5 or more above me, hook up, start small, grab a guide book, internet resource, or my personal favorite, a good ol topo map, for a starting point. start dreaming, do some rescue drills together. build confidence and terrain knowledge together. cracking a group that took years to forge and learn their spots is kinda tough without knowing you.

or, try 'answering' a post on TAY. people are always looking for a partner on there. you're more likely to get a bite from a hungry fish.

Sorry if I'm "creeping" on this post as I'm not a WA local. Just read in occasionally in hopes of seeing some rad photos.
But I wanted to post and say that the above post offers some solid advice on picking partners partners, both hunting them down and keeping groups down to solid, competent people. Good stuff.
I'll go back to the MT thread now!

Ryan,

Sorry to hear about your experience, but sometimes you are better off sending a pm to person on the thread. I met several WA State splitters on this thread through a pm instead of waiting for response. Your next best opportunity is the Mt Baker Splitfest next month. I'm sure you will meet tons of people to venture out on some tours. If you are ever in the Portland or southern Washington area, I'll go tour with you. We got a solid group of guys always looking to get out. Good Luck

Anybody else headed to the LBS this weekend? I'm taking the splits but will probably be doing slack country laps instead of climbing Shuksan. :)

Picking new partners is tough. You need everybody at about the same level - commitment, fitness, experience, etc to make it work out. The Baker splitfest is a great way to meet people of all levels but I'm a bit biased. :)
