More Info
I've been climbing for awhile now, and I supposed I've climbed a lot of stuff. I think I've reached the point where I'm considered one of the "old" guys, in that everyone I see at the gym or crag seems to be getting younger than me. I like to look at pretty pictures and discuss training, which is necessary to climb hard at my age.

North Arete
Sep 5, 2023 · Lead / Onsight. With J and A. Awesome day in the mountains. the weather had been sketchy for a few days, and they were skeptical. we made a later start to allow warming. was still pretty cold on the first few pitches in the shade, but turned into a gorgeous day. it's a really fine route.

South Face
Sep 2, 2023 · Lead / Onsight. With J and A. Did this in an all out blitz from the car in a day. climbed in the late afternoon amidst eerie clouds... really cool! It had rained that morning, so we got a late start on the hike in from Onion Valley. setup camp at Charlotte lake, then did the approach in under 2 hours. took us about 2.5 hrs base to summit seth lots of simul- climbing. interesting climbing.
