Description

I live in Grand Junction, CO, but play all over the place, especially in Utah.

I'm down for a wide range of activities, including peak bagging, canyoneering, climbing, mountain biking, road biking, paddling, and more.

I have an odd work schedule, so it can sometimes be hard to plan things.



Experience includes:

Mountains

10 days, 31 peaks (mostly 13ers, 2 14ers) in the San Juans (incl. Wham Ridge and Jagged)
3 of the 4 traverses (Crestone, Maroon, El Diente-Wilson)
Rainier, Baker, Hood, Shasta
Grand Teton - Owen-Spalding (and Exum in July 2013)
Capitol Peak - Knife Ridge
Pyramid, Sneffels, Uncompahgre, US Grant, Pilot Knob
Ritter/Banner
Mt. Conness - North Ridge and North Peak
Whintey - Mountainers Route
Devils Tower (July 2013)
Wind River Range - Pingora and Wolfs Head (July 2013)


Canyons:

As of June 2013, I've done routes in Escalante, Robbers Roost, North Wash, San Rafael Swell, Zion, and Cedar Mesa, and Arizona and Death Valley.

Including canyons such as:
Lower PINTAC, Egypt 4, Big Tony, Poe/Cricket, Choprock, Pandoras Box, The Squeeze, Imlay, Psycho D, Alcatraz, East Baker, Chambers, Slideanide, Hogs 1-4, Neon and many more...



Very good downclimber and pothole escaper. Can climb and/or lead at 5.9/5.10. Very confident scrambler at C3-low C5 (and have soloed routes at 5.4-5.6, more due summer 2013).




Interests:

Mountains:
Little Bear/Blanca Traverse!!!
Lone Eagle, Snowmass, Chicago Basin 14ers, 3rd Flatiron, and anything else that sounds interesting

Canyons:
DDI
Long Branch
Upper PINTAC
SOS and/or Bishop




Capable company welcome

Hi Bri,
I apologize for the late response, I thought I would be sent notices for these posts. My vacation is pretty full for this year but if I can get some free time later in Sept or Oct I'd definitely be game for something down that way. Otherwise next year I definitely plan on getting down there (finally!). Also expecting an outing to Havasupai next year.

Ingrid, I apologize profusely for missing your message... I thought I would receive notification of these posts. If you went to Moab, I hope you had a good time... what did you see? Otherwise, if you haven't, let me know and I would definitely meet up if my schedule allows. There aren't a whole lot of nice slot canyons immediately around Moab, but there is fantastic hiking, mtn biking, and some climbing (though I am much less familiar with the latter).

I am looking into some canyoneering either in Zion or Robber's Roost (West of Moab, indirectly) later in March or April if you are interested.

Again, I apologize. Take care.

A
