More Info
Getting ready to move to Colorado Springs...finally heading home after 19 years.

Originally from Colorado, I've been fortunate enough to have climbed in quite a few places around the country thanks to the U.S. Army:
-- North Carolina
-- Red River Gorge
-- Texas limestone, Enchanted Granite, and long weekends to...Oklahoma?
-- Northeastern Rock & Ice from NY to NH
-- Alaska's wilds down the Parks, Rich, and up the Dalton
-- Looking for dry rock in the PNW
-- And always heading back to CO for vacation

If I had to pick a single form of climbing that I enjoy most, it would be trad, but I'm not picky and will take just about any opportunity to climb. I'm pretty new to ice climbing, and look forward to doing more. I'm always looking for new climbing partners.
