More Info
I was Initially taught to climb outdoors at 14 years old as a cub scout at Jump Off Rock over Lake Jocassee (before it was illegal), and I've been a devoted rock climber for over 22 years since then (I turn 36yo in 2018). I prefer multi-pitch trad, but always happy to do whatever brings me closer to vertical life on the rock (boulder, sport, gym, aid, rappel, ice, mountaineer, etc.).  Some of my favorite climbing areas include The Chief, Yosemite, Castle Crags, Smith Rock, Beacon Rock, Laurel
