It's certainly doable. But attempting it with someone he's never met (or climbed with) is asking for trouble.

I'd like to ask some questions, just out of curiosity, but I have a feeling that would leave me even more confused.

Snowshoe, ski, climb car to car in sunny weather

So, is that snowshoe AND ski? You gonna carry skis on the route? That'll make for some sweet photos!

Bump for the night owls and party animals of Reno
and beyond. It's true, this car-to-car would be a
sufferfest by design and huge cardiovascular workout.
Huge! But it would also be sublime, sweet and
delicious...

Bump to say-

Thanks bluering for the concern. Really, no worries though, as I'm thoroughly spoiled
and only venture out when the point forecast -

is pasted with those big yellow golden circles across the week. Signifying bluebird skies.
Also, winds are a dealbreaker. I tend to take those personally.
Like I said, pretty spoiled here.

But that week is coming soon, right around the corner,
I can feel it. Can hardly wait, woohoo!

Cragman-
That sounds equally as adventurous. So don't be
surprised to get the call when the weather perks
up. Hulk here we come!

A lot of funny on this thread, Buju.

.....

EDIT

Just a reminder, too. There are a lot of 1-2 pitch
VERY WORTHY climbs up little slide canyon. As you all know
already, it doesn't always have to be about
summiting the Hulk.

Even climbing just the first three pitches of PV and skiing out
would be a great day. All kinds of good stuff up there
for a good workout and adventure.

PM me. Got some free time coming up in Feb and Mar.
The Hulk area has my attention. Just sayin.

There you go! Thanks, Chris, for the inspiration.
Note first pic also shows the face in the sun.
At just the perfect time of day.

Good on Todd! And you I presume. :)

Looks like a "No Go" for this coming week:
