A surfing trip to Baja Mexico fell through. While leafing through a magazine looking for back country skiing trips I saw an ad for a mountaineering course on Mt Baker in Washington State. After seeing my first glacier I was hooked.
Solo ascents of chossy Sydney sea cliffs or bushwalking with heavy packs, long days and inclement weather had never seemed to induce quite enough suffering despite my best efforts at taking shortcuts and having them go wrong. Mountaineering encompassed this misery, and so much more. I have never looked back!
