More Info
Hi, I'm Brian.

I've been climbing off and on since college. I started off in a school organized club, and gained experience following and leading in the Schwanagunks.

Since moving to California three years ago, I've been taking trips to Joshua Tree and Idyllwild as often as my work schedule allows.

I'm typically free during weekends and am willing to drive to and camp at the ends of the earth for a few good days of trad climbs.

Bringing a ride, rope and lead rack into the equation, I am always interested to meet new people.
