I like all climbing, though I haven't experienced mixed, ice or alpine. So far, trad, sport, bouldering, gym... they're all part of the same game and are components that add up to a great time. Been climbing since I was 9 and, next to my wife ; ), it's defined my life. See climbing til this game ends.

|Boltway 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
Jun 15, 2012 - Totally cludge. pretty much fucked everything up. great lesson learning experience. went over instead of under flake, didnt join pitches, ran out of gear, didnt have 2 ropes for descent, ran out of water. in all 300% longer than anticipated. BUT jump
Lunar Leap 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a
Jun 15, 2012 - Leap is out of control. Stood on Erin's back! ; ) More sketched than expected but to do again would be a blast now that I know the story.
