Favorite Climbs
Gangland, which I've climbed hundreds of times. My most memorable NM climbs have been adventures in the Sandias, Questa, & Capulin.
Other Interests
I used to ski, backpack & trail run quite a bit - I ought to do those non-climbing activities more often- but seems lately I'd usually rather climb.

More Info
Thanks for checking out my page. Hope you find my comments & opinions useful, mostly just trying to help out other NM climbers.

Seems I've started to acquire an undeserved hardman reputation locally after climbing many of the routes in NM and posting to this site for years. Look: I'm not especially strong, talented, or motivated to train- just climbing outside a few times every week. 1000s of pitches, spent seeking out rewarding experiences and pushing personal limits, while having fun and not taking it too seriously. Life is so simple and beautiful.

I've got a handful of wonderful regular climbing partners, but I'm always happy to meet and spend time with more, so hit me up for:
-weekday evenings at the Dungeon or White Rock, spring to fall
-weekend days in the Jemez, Diablo, Sandias, Capulin, El Rito, Tres Piedras, Socorro Box etc.
-kid-inclusive adventures
-I can sometimes do farther trips (primarily keen on multi-pitch trad), but let's climb together locally first
