More Info
I have two primary goals in climbing: (1) to explore spectacular features in spectacular settings and (2) to challenge and learn about myself. With this in mind, I get stoked on alpine or multipitch trad as well as trying hard on single pitch trad/sport. I love efficiency and productive teamwork. I enjoy early mornings, long days, and fitting in as much climbing/beauty-basking as possible. I value self-care, communication, and optimism in my partners and try to embody the same.
