The first mountain I have ever hiked was a nice hill situated near the Ontario-Quebec border when I was about nine years old. It is called Mont Chaudron, or Mount Cheminis.

(There's a nice picture of it covered with snow if you scroll down a bit)

About ten years later, my friends and I hiked, scrambled, and bouldered up a small local peak in Southern California. Since then, I have been seriously hooked. I did my first winter climb on San Jacinto Peak and my first desert peak was Sunset Mountain in Anza-Borrego. I have now been climbing all over Southern California and really enjoying it!

A teacher got me interested although I only went caving with him. My first climb was probably in Ogwen, I´ve forgotten which one, in 1972. Totaly green, unprepared, couldn´t tie proper knots etc.
