More Info
Hey-yo. R. Kelly Liggin, always looking for new, low-attitude, high-altitude, big-smiling partners.

Been at this game forra while, now. Probably best call me a cragman. Love trad/sport/ice/mixed all equally well. Low altitude, weekend warrior stuff as well as sending in the attic when summer temps come on. Tried aid--think it's too much ugh. Tried mountaineering, think it's a slog. Tried bouldering--probably outta do more, but there you go, the ropes call. And yes, I have "climbed" in a gym. But both times left me realizing that plastic is a thing you put water into. Have gotten into travel climbing, lately. Kalymnos, Ton Sai, Arapiles and beyond. A million other places now on my list...

And? And there was a time when I gave something of a damn about career and importance and status and what. I dunno. Something happened, and I realize that none of that really matters to me much at all anymore. Now all I really want to do is send. Anybody down for getting up?

Late. ~RKL
