More Info
I started climbing when I was 11 and haven't gotten injured (aside from tendonitis!), so I figure I'm doing something right. I've done most of my climbing in Kentucky, Colorado, Tennessee, and North Carolina. I've done some climbing in South America and Europe as well. My favorite climbing is in the Utah desert and Rocky Mountain alpine, but I enjoy just about any kind of day on rock. Since I'm married, getting a PhD, and have kids, those days are pretty rare.
