More Info
Grew up camping and hiking in northern Maine, began rock climbing on the East Coast in 1994. Climbed a lot at the Red River Gorge, New River Gorge and Seneca Rocks. After taking some climbing trips out to CO my family and I moved to Erie, CO in 2006. Spent four years in Colorado climbing primarily in Eldo, BoCan and RMNP. Moved to Atlanta, GA in 2010.
