More information:
Just a strong gumbie (believe in the philosophy of the beginners mind) who's been at it 35+yrs, who likes to stick his head around the next corner to see whats there (and pull it back before it gets chopped).

Lately I've been drawn to the beauty of desert cracks and ice of the San Juans, but in a few years I'd like to go back to attempt some routes, I've failed on in Peru and Nepal in the past.
