More Info
I started climbing in 1980, and enjoy all types of climbing, from single-pitch sport routes to multi-pitch trad and alpine adventures.

I am a member of the Colorado Mountain Club, and lead rock climbing trips for the club, and also teach in the Boulder Group's Trad and Sport Rock Leading Schools.

In the past few years, I have started putting up new routes in Boulder Canyon, primarily at Tonnere Tower, the Bihedral, and Boulder Slips.

Thanks to my route-setting partners: Bob D'Antonio, Greg Hand, Bruno Hache, Mike Amato, and Bruce Hildenbrand for their help in these efforts.

I will continue to look for new, fun, moderate routes that all climbers can enjoy.
