More Info
I'm Originally from the US and have been a passionate climber since my first time climbing in 1994. I spent 15 years climbing and traveling throughout the US and the world before deciding to make the Hautes-Alpes region of France my home base with my wonderful wife, Anne, also a climber and a native of the Alps. If you need any information about climbing in southern France, feel free to contact me.
