More information:
Used to love surfing on rainy days & climbing on sunny ones when I was living in NC. Moved to FoCo in 2012. No more surfing. Recent [estimated] downgrade to lead/follow grades b/c rusty & outta shape. Hopefully I'll get back in the swing of things soon.


"Okay, I've been thinking about it.
Old custom: wait for a quick summer shower to wash the n00bs off the rock like coal dust from a miner's ball sack, then race up the route gathering all bail gear in a frenzied gear grab.
New custom: n00bs get washed off the rock like aforementioned ball dust, go home, then post up which route and what market value of said gear was. This will save a lot of surveillance time for more experienced climbers, fully maximizing their booty banditry. Everybody wins!" hilarious! I'm keeping this strategy for summer at Ship.

  Sep 30, 2015 - Super handy for linking together a few of the amazing routes on Stone!

  Sep 30, 2015 - Much like JD, there's nothing that makes this route special, but I can't help having fun on it :).
Great White Way 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a
  Sep 30, 2015 - The truly CLASSIC Stone Mtn water groove! This route is one of the reasons I love Stone so much!! Looking up it seemed scary the first time, but it's actually quite secure friction (and comfy stance). Good way to break into Stone 9's.
Grand Funk Railroad 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c
  Sep 30, 2015 - Best of the best!! If you like slab, do NOT miss this route. It is one of the reasons I like Stone Mt so very much! Neat train track features, nice view, fun friction, and even a couple of cam placements (.4 or .5 and a .75-ish), as I recall.

Can you find Keith? Pilot Mountain, NC (2008).  The photo is merely here to tell anyone who goes to the area, that they really should consider spending some time at Pilot.  It's a lot of fun, short routes... and Moore's is right next door.  Frank.  One of the best darn climbing partners a guy could have [He's the one in the hat].  New River Gorge, WV (2010).  Just a pretty face. New River Gorge, WV (2010)  A little personal info about what I do (and don't do) when I'm not climbing.  Uploaded for the purposes of a profile pic.
