Hi! Ashley, I’ve been in Washington DC working in tech for 2 years now – I spend an exorbitant amount of time dreaming/planning my escape to mountains. I started mountaineering in summer 2017 on a whim and couldn’t get enough of it. I built up my skills/confidence/base fitness for a 9-month sabbatical in 2019 to climb big mountains in succession. That went so well that I want to do it again. I’ll plan, train and save $ this year to set me up for the next round. Sights are set on Ama Dablam & Cho Oyu, my 1st lead of Rainier, Shuksan, considering Carstenz & Vinson (depending on $), a Winter Presidential Traverse in NH, a repeat of Denali bc it’s magic… that’s the short list. I do triathlons to train for the mountains, I ski and rock climb for fun. Excited to be here.
