More information:
My first climb was Otto's Rt in Nov of 1991. I was a weekend climber for several years before I found out that living in your truck at climbing area's was more productive to improving. So that's what I did for several years. Spending winters at Jtree and moving north as the weather warmed. FYI, Update 3/16/2016 Now I work fulltime so I don't climb much anymore, though I still attempt to every so often.
