More Info
I've been a professional guide for the USASFC for 16 yrs and truly love multi-pitch trad climbing but do a lot of sport as most of my partners aren't into trad. I really work to keep my all around skills honed, have modest ability on friction but prefer crack climbs and anything with a good roof. God bless old trad climbers for their audacious skill, sport-bolters for their donations of hardware and hard work and everyone who respect the outdoors and those who are there.
