More information:
(aka SSQ in summit registers)

Prefer long multi-pitch rock routes, especially granite alpine traverses, but I also trail run, hike and road bike (mostly if I'm injured). Open to new partners for local crags and 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.
