More information:
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.

Crescendo 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a
Fun day on Lipasuction  In the clouds on el Sendero Luminoso  Working el Sendero Luminoso  16-Nov-2012.  Basecamp ~ 2/3 way up trail to Sugarloaf.  Sun setting behind the Organ Needle (I think).  Forecast had high 60s, sun & 0% precip for a week.  Held true for that day & the last.  Organ weather didn't agree at all with either Las Cruces or White Sands forecasts for 3 days in between.  Cold, windy, wet.  Always come prepared.  woops.  SE wall.  History???
