(aka SSQ in summit registers)

Prefer long multi-pitch rock routes, especially granite alpine traverses, but I also trail run, hike and bike (mostly if I'm injured). Open to new partners for crags, multi-pitch, alpine rock routes, and canyons. In general I work weekdays, but I also work remotely so I am flexible on climbing location as long as there's an internet connection on the days I have to work. Usually spend summers somewhere close to alpine routes.

Note: I stopped logging sport and bouldering routes, but my trad ticks are current.
