More information:
(aka SSQ in summit registers)

Prefer long multi-pitch rock routes, especially granite alpine traverses, but I also trail run, hike and OCD on Flatirons linkups. Also (reluctantly) pull on plastic in the dead of winter. I spend at least a month every summer in the Sierra.

Also open to new partners for local crags, in addition to RMNP, Black Canyon, desert towers, and other alpine rock routes. 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.
