Likes to climb: Trad, Sport, TR, Gym climbs none specified
I am a former New Hampshire native & climber with 37 years worth of roped adventures throughout the Northeast, Yosemite, Colorado, Wyoming, Chamonix, and elsewhere.
Learning in NH gave me experience in trad, mountaineering, aid, and ice. Sport, bouldering, and gym climbing are OK, but not where my heart lies. I have also enjoyed non-climbing explorations, hikes, and kayaks in such places as Alaska, Newfoundland, and 47 of the 50 states.
