Applicant yes. I put this thread out so i am the author. The Author wants a very similar like minded individual to accompany him on his quests. So yes, in a way i am looking for 1 or 2 warrior braves or ladies to marathon out say 20 peaks in a month.

Are you bringing a rope and rack? If so, what are you comfortable leading?

Oh, wow, a praise. And I didn't even have to mention six figures salary or nursing a Korean boss who barely speaks English. :P

Who ARE we talking to? Who are you? If you have all these qualifications and all this experience, there may well be someone on this forum who has some first or second-hand knowledge of you. Not sure the Man vs. Wild ethos is necessary for a stroll up the 'harder and desolate' Mt. Sherman.
I'm Batman!

Some of these climbs are not easy. Yes most are walk up, but some get pretty serious. How can anyone say that these are all easy? The ridge from Wilson Peak to El Diente is easy? How about the Class 4's? There are variations like any mountain has. Mt. Snefels has good technical climbing. The Wetterhorn and nearby Matterhorn a 13'er is pretty serious?
the ridge from *mt. wilson* to el diente is a cakewalk albeit w a ton of exposure; there is no ridge connecting wilson peak to el diente. sneffels has technical routes, yes, but rotten rock.

the point is to weed them out. It's all humor at this point. it's meant to be silly. i am confident and prepare well, not cocky. i got a few pm's and that was really my point. people like minded would have texted me by now. the rest well? you didn't make it because you talk too much. applicant is just another word for interested

Is this the adult version of "I know you are, but what am I?"... dude, you've got so many red flags you should take that international climbing experience of yours to Soviet Russia.
