Always looking for Mon-Fri Red Rock partners. Local who is allergic to the crowds on the weekends. Travel a lot, but when in St. George, always up for coming to Red Rocks for a day or two, particularly during the winter months when other areas are not warm enough. Don't be shy about your climbing level. Tons of easy stuff (what Red Rocks is known for) and I like all days out. Cannot switch leads myself past 5.11 trad, more of an alpine climber than rock jock.
""You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.""
