More information:
I started climbing as a teen in the Midwest in the 80's... I moved to Boulder County in search of more rock in 1995. The crags around Boulder are now my home away from home. I've gone through periods of time where one particular location or another was my primary area, but as a husband and father, I tend to have a lot less free time now, and so I wander about more. I usually climb trad or solo and like longer routes best, but I also occasionally climb aid or sport.

I once counted and had climbed 800+ routes in Eldorado Canyon (with repeats, it would have been uncountable), 800+ in Boulder Canyon, 600+ in the Flatirons and a few hundred or more each in the SSV, Lumpy Ridge, the South Plate, Vedauvoo and Indian creek. I also like to climb in RMNP and other alpine areas locally and nationally. My favorite road trips are to Joshua Tree - CA(300+ routes), Red Rocks - NV (~200 routes) and my home crag of over a decade ago, Red River Gorge, KY (hundreds, but never counted).
Have loved a few trips to other places - The High Sierra, Sedona, Mt Lemon, Cochise, Squamish, Tahoe, Truckee, City of Rocks, Zion, Black Canyon, Unaweep, Colorado National Monument, Conway, the Bay Area crags, etc...

Asleep In the Parthenon as seen from the talus to the South.  The right-leaning crack and offset through the roof in the center of the photo is it.  Sonia places another piece of gear in the middle of the overhang of 'Spread Your Wings.'  Sonia Buckley looks up into the business on the F.A. of 'Spread Your Wings.'  Spread Your Wings follows the right side of the crack system, whereas Ride On splits left.  Sonia Buckley follows the crux roof on the F.
