Sup Backpacker,

I moved to Montana last November and Just about every weekend im off exploring a new peak/trail/lake or looking for bears to run away from. I've been solo for a long time, hiking since I was a kid. I've also done a few backpacking trips.

I've recently taken an interest in Mountaineering and picked up a pair of crampons and an Ice Axe. I'd really like to find a hiking partner who also has an interest in light Mountaineering. I am not into ropes, or serious climbing. Just peak bagging and exploring the wilderness of Montana.

I'm 24 and live in Great Falls Montana, and frequent the Rocky Mountain front. I also intend to spend a lot of time in the Beartooths and Crazy Mountains.

Murcus,

I'm an avid hiker in Jackson, WY but pushing 50 I might be considerably slower than you are. Whatever the case I can at least give you some great ideas and share some pics.

As an avid backpacker from SD, I spend a considerable amount of time in Wyoming's mountains - both on and off trail.  I am always looking for someone to do trips in the Wind River Range.  I enjoy snow travel using an ice ax and crampons.  I am also skilled with rope work on glaciers with cravasses.  

I also do a lot of trips to the Big Horns and had a very memorable trip to the Beartooths.

Hello guys,

Thank you for the replies. Jackson and the Wind River are a bit further south than I expect to reach this year. I might consider it though, I'll let ya know.

You ever go to the Bighorns? I usually just hike/backpack solo but I'd be up for a hiking partner! Let me know if you want to check out the Bighorns in WY. There are a lot of peaks to climb there, and some rockclimbing too if you do any climbing...

You moved to a beautiful state, too bad the great falls are gone. These boys are right. If you can ever make it to the Wind River Range, you'll not be disappointed. Until then I guess you'll have too settle for the Bitteroots or north Yellowstone. What an envy. Good luck dude!
