Other Interests
Besides climbing, my other passion is fly fishing. I've been pretty lucky- I currently hold 14 IGFA (International Game Fish Association) World Records for fly fishing!
More Info
I'm the owner/director of Vertical Adventures Rock Climbing School, based at Joshua Tree National Park, which I founded in 1983. I'm the author of Best Climbs Joshua Tree National Park and Best Climbs Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks, featuring the most classic and favored routes from each area, available at Nomad Ventures climbing shop at Joshua Tree or Idyllwild. My latest instructional books are Toproping: Rock Climbing for the Outdoor Beginner, and Advanced Rock Climbing.
