I started climbing in 2008 while attending Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Co. After my first trip to the crag I was hooked. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to climb at a ton of different crags all around the world including Yangshuo in China, Geyikbayiri in Turkey, and Saudi Arabia.
In January 2011, my buddy Cameron Frisbee and I packed into my Toyota Tacoma and set off on a 5 month climbing trip across the western US. This trip was highlighted by great climbs, epic adventures, and good people all along the way. Whether it is pinching pebbles in Bishop, jamming splitters in the dessert, or sleeping on a big wall, I simple can't get enough of climbing. I can even be found pulling on plastic if the weather is right (read full on blizzard).
My current goal in climbing is to learn how to project. The most I have ever tried a route is 4 times. One reason for this goal is to climb harder, but another reason is to learn to embrace failure in the short term in order to see greater success in the long run. I am always up for climbing with new people and I have yet to find a style of climbing that I don't like. So whether you are looking for someone to swap leads on a alpine route or share your sport project with shoot me a PM, I am always psyched!!!
