More information:
Hi, I started climbing in 1988. I strive to climb a little of everything and be a well-rounded climber... which is to say I've never excelled at any one type. Generally shying away from the rock gym helps avoid tendon injuries. In recent years, I made some of my goals climbing a few destinations around the world, and of course some good Eldo routes and some sweet ice routes. Not doing any testpieces lately, but looking forward to some weekend warrioring and nights around the campspot shooting the breeze with buddies.

2014-01-18.  Grivel 360s:  Old style on the left, new on the right.  A couple guys caught in the act on the .11- variation.  Email me if you know who they are, as the 21MP original makes a tack-sharp large print. (all rights reserved).  Third Stage, May 2008.  Wadsworth Blvd., May 2008.
