More information:
For me, climbing is about doing aesthetic routes, appreciating the wild, natural places into which they lead, and having fun.

The main things I look for in a partner are enthusiasm and a good attitude. Experienced and newer climbers are equally welcome. I'm solid, safe, and experienced. I climb mostly trad and sport.

Locally, I'm occasionally looking for a partner for Seneca, the New, and the gym. Elsewhere, I'm occasionally looking for partners for Red Rocks, the Sierra, and elsewhere in the west.
