More information:
Ben Hicks. Trad climber since 1979, previously guide/climbing instructor for 20 years, experienced, safe, alive. Climb about 80-100 days/year.

Lead 5.10 pretty much every day of climbing, some 5.11 when climbing consistently. My listed leading grades are where I am typically solid most of the time and rarely take or fall.

Crag rat at heart, trad, multipitch, sport, travel all good.

No longer do altitude, alpine, mountaineering, ice, snow, big walls.


Note: I don't keep up the tick list anymore, but look at my comments, ratings etc to see what I have been up to. Also, to do list includes things that either felt really hard or I didn't lead clean/ would like to repeat, and things I'd like to follow to check out and probably lead in the future.

Let's go climbing!
