More Info
Have been climbing for 24 years and I'm originally from Australia, moved to Texas eleven years ago and now reside in Atlanta. For the last few years I've been a tri-annual climber outdoors, compared to my early years of constant climbing, and so I'm not as strong as I used to be. My wife and I moved from Austin to Atlanta last year (2016) and are hoping to increase our time on rock and meet some ATL local climbers too. As far as experience, I can usually keep a good head-game and rely on my experience often when it comes to leading, long days and committing to run-out routes. I need to put in some time to get better on the steep overhanging routes. Always willing to climb, when time allows, but until I move closer to the mountains I will be predominantly the weekend warrior.
