More information:
I appreciate safety and well practiced ropes skills. I am taking an AMGA Rock Guide Course in Oct 2017. I have plenty of multi pitch and trad experience. I enjoy climbing in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and consider Eldorado Canyon SP my home destination. I like climbing old classics with stiff ratings (so hopefully I'm never sandbagged elsewhere) and am currently putting efforts up on 5.11's in Eldo. I also enjoy easy moderates and am happy just being outside. I work with Outward Bound in Leadville, CO. and guide around Leadville as well. I am easy going, patient and always down to climb!

8.4.2016 Unclipping from the anchor as I begin the second pitch of Ruper (5.8+) in Eldo. So stoked to finally get the opportunity to climb this stellar route. Very enjoyable.  On top of Ancient Art in UT.
