|More information:|I work at Nomad Ventures, a climber's shop with 4 locations.
I started climbing during the summer of 2010.
First climb was Little Murderers at Suicide Rock, July 2010. I stood at the base, belaying my friend John (who taught me how to belay at the base of the route 5 minutes before casting off on lead) hoping he had a good climb because there was no way I was following this insanity. The longer he took the more I changed my mind--"Come on, finish so I can get at this thing" I thought to myself after a while.
At the base of every single climb since then I've thought to myself, "I can't wait to finish this climb today and sell all this shit on eBay with I get home."
First trad lead was on the eve of my 53rd birthday, Left Ski Track.
First really big climb/lead was Snake Dike a few weeks later.
First "I really can't believe I'm leading this" lead was The Open Book, 5.9, pitches 1 (into part of 2) and 3.
First fall on lead, Peer Pressure, 10a. Got sloppy and reached for a bomber hold without getting better feet first. Lesson learned and the fall wasn't that bad.
First climb I bailed off of--Flower of High Rank. Did it on top rope but...it's different on the sharp end! So, still a goal.
Proudest lead--Mechanic's Route. After bailing off of it the week before.
