More information:
Have been climbing for 19 years and I'm originally from Australia, having moved to Texas seven years ago. Prior to this year, I've been a tri-annual climber, compared to my early years of constant climbing, and so I'm not as strong as I used to be. This year I've made some decent gains and climbed a lot more, especially now that I've moved to Austin. I can usually keep a good head-game and rely on my experience often when it comes to long days and committing to run-out routes. Getting better on the steep overhanging routes. Always willing to climb, when time allows, but until I move closer to the mountains I will be predominantly the weekend warrior.
