More information:
Have been climbing for 23 years and I'm originally from Australia, having moved to Texas eleven years ago. For the last few years I've been a tri-annual climber outdoors, compared to my early years of constant climbing, and so I'm not as strong as I used to be. My wife and I moved from Austin to Atlanta last year (2016) and are hoping to increase our time on rock and meet some ATL local climbers too. As far as experience, I can usually keep a good head-game and rely on my experience often when it comes to leading, long days and committing to run-out routes. I need to put in some time to get better on the steep overhanging routes. Always willing to climb, when time allows, but until I move closer to the mountains I will be predominantly the weekend warrior.
