More Info
I appreciate safety and well practiced ropes skills. I have completed my AMGA Rock Guide Course (10/2017), Alpine Guide Course (6/2018) and Advanced Rock Guide Course (9/2018). I enjoy Eldo and The Black as some primary destinations. I just like climbing outside - moderates, long routes, hard routes, sport, trad, sandstone, granite, cracks, slab, whatever. So long as it is fun and enjoyable. Let's get out and climb something!
