More information:
I climb for fun and friendship now - the hard stuff remains for others more capable. But over the years I've been blessed with great climbing partner/friends and have had the opportunity to climb at such places in the U.S. as Yosemite, Red Rocks and Joshua Tree; in Australia at Arapiles, the Grampians and Mt. Buffalo; and in the Northwest Territories, Canada in the Cirque of the Unclimbables. And of course, I get to climb often at Smith Rock State Park, my "home" climbing area.
Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!
