More Info
Dedicated, thoughtful climber always looking for chill, psyched and safe partners for all climbing whether destination or local. Exploring new places is part of the fun. Bonus points for experienced alpine leaders with equal parts interest in expanding technical/ self-rescue skill set and climbing ability. But in the end, it's not most about climbing hard but having fun in amazing environments and going home safe and fulfilled.
