More information:
I crossed the Rockies in July of 2003, and landed in Vegas. The first 2 years climbing was spent in the Red River Gorge (a nice classroom). Upon arriving in Vegas I found it hard to find a steady partner, so I started rope-soloing at the local Limestone crags. I spent many a night high off the deck with nothing but my head lamp to guide my way. I climb it all...Sport, Trad, Bouldering. They each have something to offer. I also like to visit as many different areas as possible. The variety, I feel, helps.
