More information:
I've been living in Estes Park on and off since 1994, where at Lumpy Ridge I learned to place gear and lead my first trad route. My favorite climbs are multi-pitch trad routes, especially alpine, but I'm also partial to ice and snow. I've got a soft spot in my heart for obscure lines and first ascents as well. Mostly I just love to climb. To be up high in wild and beautiful places is what I live for.
