More information:
I started climbing at Looking Glass Rock in North Carolina in 1992. Thus I LOVE FRICTION, especially slabs like Yosemite. I climbed all over the country while out on the road 1996-97 at many major climbing areas.
Favorites: The Gunks, Squamish, Yosemite and the entire Sierra (duh) and anywhere general adventure climbing can be had. I stopped climbing for a few years and got back into it seriously in 2007.
I'm a trad climber focusing on multi pitch moderates. I lead solid 5.7 and follow 5.9. As an ex concert rigger I am an anchor matrix freak and I know how to place and remove pro. I am an avid photographer, hiker and camper. Looking forward to hooking up with some of you at Red Rocks!

where is it?  Curtis S. at the base of Fly From Soup to Nuts 5.9+, Moderate Mecca, Red Rocks. <br />After getting cocky on his first trad lead on Chicken Gumbo 5.6 I put him on something a bit more substantial.  <br />Neither of us could pull the hard 5.9 this day however. Wah. <br /> <br />A heavily tweaked 9 frame HDR from the Canon powershot G9 running the CHDK crack.  Brent D. wrapping the rope at the top of Johnny Vegas 5.7, Oak Creek Canyon, Red Rocks. This was a great day winter of '09, we had a blast rapping the gully too! This is why we climb. <br /> <br />A heavily tweaked single frame pseudo HDR.  Curtis S. doing his first ever trad lead on Chicken Gumbo For Your Dumbo 5.6, Moderate Mecca, Red Rocks. He's on a way loose top rope which is hanging over his left leg. <br />Woot! Go Curtis!  My man Brent about to do the 100' rappel into the gully next to the "Tuna and Chips" wall at Red Rocks. Here, he is 'on rappel' with a prusik back up (below the device) and he's still tied into to the bolts with a double runner through an auto locking carabiner to his harness. That runner will not be removed until he's double and triple checked the entire system before he descends the rope. A bit of techy stuff there for ya. This guy's a natural, in four months he's gone from complete newbie on this very climb to actually doing his first real trad lead on that same climb yesterday. Yosemite here we come in 2010!
