More information:
I started climbing in August 2010, my friend bribed me my first time with an offer of 2 Chipotle Burritos. Challenge Accepted!

Then I started leading mild Sport climbs in early 2011 at The Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Shortly after I moved to Washington St and started to develop and hone more of my Trad climbing skills and bouldering (mostly).

I was in Portland, Maine for several years and have been enjoying all types of NE rock, but mostly Shagg Crag!

I am now in Concord, New Hampshire and feel I finally am starting to unlock the intricacies of 'Granite' climbing, maybe. . and still have a lot of love for Schist and Rumney itself, despite the crowds.

I'd love to do more Hard Sport, easier multipitch Trad/Sport (and some longer multipitch), maybe even alpine/ice (I went once a couple years ago, spooky).

I love me some nature.
