(Thanks for checking out my profile page.)
I'm always interested in meeting more motivated local climbing partners- for sport & trad both. In recent years, these are the places I've been climbing most, so hit me up: Dungeon, White Rock, Jemez, Diablo, Sandias, Capulin, El Rito, Tres Piedras.

Though I've been called a half-crazy sandbagger, I'd prefer to see myself as reasonably patient, safe, competent, and someone who inspires the best out of my climbing partners. I'm not that great of a climber, but it's fun, and I still like to try hard on challenging climbs. Currently, I'm not focused enough to regularly train, project much, or to take any of it that seriously. Let's go climb something rad!!!
