More Info
I recently moved from San Jose, CA to Gardnerville, NV, to be closer to the mountains. I am either "semi-retired" or a "part-time consultant" depending on the moment, but the bottom line is that my availability can usually be adjusted in order to have fun.

The past few years I have not done much climbing, but I am pretty fit and technically sound. I will TR to train and have fun, but I love multi-pitch, and especially alpine climbing.

I enjoy couloirs, having climbed Dana and North Peak, and would love to climb the U- and V-Notch couloirs.

It has been several years, but I've climbed the Royal Arches twice, Mt. Sill, Mt. Whitney East Face, Tenaya Peak, Cathedral Peak. I am open to repeating any of these.
