More Info
Ticks are selective without a consistent pattern except for their length. Age is fake. Some trip reports are on my website. I lead conservatively and am risk averse. I'm an infrequent weekend warrior and my climbing ability and desire to travel go up and down depending on psych and focus, but I'm on the lookout for good climbing partners who have good endurance, positive attitude, and provide attentive belays. If you climb strong, that's icing on the cake. Feel free to PM me.

Third Pillar, Regular Route
Jul 25, 2021 · Swung leads with CEH (P2&4). Didn't think the piece I placed at P4 crux would have held, but the moves were not hard. The hike was very enjoyable.

Tuolumne Alpine Triple Crown
Jul 24, 2021 · Solo/Simul'ed with CEH 14 hours c2c (Saddlebag Lake). I enjoyed the beautiful scenery, fun scrambling/climbing, and meditation by an alpine pond.

West Face
Jul 18, 2021 · Lead / Onsight. Active recovery day after Saturday's Agassiz/Goode(s) hike. Shared leads with CEH. Rain started when we were on P3 (earlier than expected), but it only made the outing more exciting and the scenery more dramatic. Will return for more.

Matthes Crest Traverse - South t…
Jun 26, 2021 · Accessed via Tenaya. Solo/belay/simul'ed with CEH past N. summit and down climbed the chute before the last two (unstable looking) mini-towers. Matthes Crest is really one of a kind.

Northwest Buttress
Jun 26, 2021 · A pleasant moderate route all around on a beautiful day. Changed into climbing shoes and roped up at Pitch 11.5 (Supertopo), and simul'ed behind CEH to the top in one go. A good way to access Matthes Crest.

East Buttress
Jun 5, 2021 · 6 pitches. Lead / Redpoint. When everyone else had abandoned the Valley due to the hot forecast, CEH and I enjoyed the quietness, shade over crux pitches, and the gentle breeze that brushed over this climb in all 5+ hours on our pleasant long pitches (6 total, lots of simul). In the afternoon, we visited the El Cap true summit and Eagle Peak before taking the scenic hike down (12.5 miles from top out back to car). (P.S. #4 is really not necessary.)
