More Info
I'm a former Colorado resident currently living in Sacramento.

In May 2002, I started the original climbingJTree.com website (built on the climbingBoulder.com web architecture). ClimbingRedRocks.com went online in February 2004. These "sister sites" would eventually evolve into the current Joshua Tree National Park and Red Rock sections of MountainProject.

C Miller and Adam Stackhouse continue to improve and expand Joshua Tree to new levels (currently over 5,000 routes!) as well as Larry DeAngelo with Red Rock (over 2,000 routes).

Screen shot of old "climbingjtree.com" home page as it looked in 2002. Seems like a long time ago!

Favorite climbing areas:
Joshua Tree National Park
Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows
California's High Sierra
Nevada's Red Rock Canyon
Indian Creek and the Moab Area
Grand Teton National Park
Eldorado Canyon SP
Squamish, British Columbia
El Potrero Chico, Mexico
El Chorro, Spain
