More information:
I'm an old school climber -- I climb conservatively, but go all day. I'm more confident climbing cracks than face, esp. slabs. An occasional weekend warrior because I have cats (I love dogs too!) and a desk job. Open to climbing with new people. If you are looking and you find me a good match, please do not hesitate to send me a PM; it will reach me.

P.S. I keep my selective tick list fairly up to date to include some more interesting ascents, which I hope to provide a view into my climbing to help with partner find. I try not to keep old ticks as some people on MP complained about repeat ticks by others.

P.P.S. I appreciate each and every one of my partners, but I usually leave names out of my ticks out of respect for privacy.

P.P.P.S. Given the availability of MP and guidebooks, true O/S's are almost non-existent these days, but I still use this notion for some ascents that I successfully led on my first attempt. If I witnessed someone else on the route before me or received extensive beta prior to my ascent, I'll use "Flash" to distinguish the experience.

Yet one more photo of crux section.  The "obvious chimney feature" as pitch 1. Two bolts.  In the process of turning the lip. (Credit: Dan)  While you can keep the feet on the side wall for little ways of the roof crack traverse, at one point, esp. if you are not very tall, you'll just have to get horizontal. The roof crack is down slanting towards the lip. (Credit: Ivy H)  Looking down at approach roads from 2nd Meat Wall. Bloom book overview map is inaccurate.
