More Info
I appreciate safety and well practiced ropes skills. I took my AMGA Rock Guide Course in Oct 2017 and am working towards my Advanced Rock Guide Course for Sept. 2018. I have plenty of multi pitch and trad experience. I enjoy climbing in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and consider Eldorado Canyon SP my home destination. I like climbing old classics with stiff ratings (so hopefully I'm never sandbagged elsewhere) and am currently putting efforts up on 5.11's in Eldo. I also enjoy easy moderates and am happy just being outside. I work with Outward Bound in Leadville, CO. and guide around Leadville as well. I am easy going, patient and always down to climb!
