More information:
My favorite crags are the Needles and Cochise Stronghold. If you're familiar with those areas then you probably already know what I like.

Recently I managed to freeze my feet so my climbing basically sucks right now. I only ended up losing part of a toe though. For the time being it's moderate (lead 5.9+ on gear, follow 5.10+) climbs for me.

  • UPDATE: Apparently I can still climb 5.11 on toprope, but my lead head is mostly shot. Looks like I can follow real climbers, though.
