(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.

Over the years, I've been called a sandbagger, a madman, and an angel. I don't believe any of that, I think I'm reasonably patient, safe, competent, and someone who seems to inspire the best out of his 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 as seriously as I used to. Let's go climb something rad!!!
