1st year apprentice mountain guide at Sierra Mountain Center based out of Bishop, CA. AMGA SPI certified and Rock Guide course completed. I'm new to the area and am looking at getting on some longer High Sierra climbs, longer free climbs in the Valley or Tuolumne, or learning some basic aid to get experience on some easier big walls in the Valley. Message me if you're interested in climbing together!

Stoked after topping out the roof crux on Sky Dive.  All I need is cams, cams, cams....  Beginning of optional 3rd pitch, described in Steve Levin's book as "an orange open book." Once over the top of the book, traverse right to a chimney (lots of loose rock here) and follow the face to the top (tri-cams could help protect the easy face leading to the summit).  View from the top to the west.  Me contemplating the crux moves. Move to the wide crack to the left for a lieback. The crack will end right at the next bolt.
