More information:
I am a professional mountain climbing guide and a freelance writer. I finally moved away from Las Vegas after living there and guiding there for nine years. I now live in Bellingham, Washington and manage the guides at the American Alpine Institute.

I have guided and climbed abroad many times, but my home ranges -- the places I love the most -- are the Red Rocks of Southern Nevada and the Cascades of Washington State.

I have authored two guidebooks. In 2003, Washington Ice: A Climbing Guide was published by Mountaineers Books and in 2008, Fun Climbs Red Rocks: Topropes and Moderates was published by Sharp End Books.

I currently make 3-4 trips to the Southwest every winter to guide and climb. The rest of the time I'm up in the Pacific Northwest playing in the Cascades...

This is what my partner looked like after cleaning these supposedly "classic" sport climbs. Every day we went to this crag we cleaned more and more mud and moss from the wall.  Exhibit A - A bolt on the Shuksan Crag. This is the worst one, but there are several that were placed wrong or that are hanging half-way out of the rock.  1: The Crack - M5+ <br />2: Tricky Start - M6+ <br />3: Pumporama - M7 <br />4: Katie's Corner - M5  1: The Crack <br />2: Tricky Start <br />3: Pumporama <br />4: Katie's Corner  A climber low on the route.
