Power = 520 (Vote Weight = 94.34%)
Occupation: Spelling Champeon
Partner Details: Always looking for additional climbing partners and friends.
A Few Words: I've been hiking and climbing for 30+ years in the northern Sierra in California. I moved away from the Bay Area in '94, but still manage to visit the Sierra at least once per year. I've also been exploring and climbing other parts of the country and world.
I completed the 50 state highpoints in March 2012 and I've climbed a few of the 7-summits.
"To lovers of the wild, these mountains are not a hundred miles away. Their spiritual power and the goodness of the sky make them near, as a circle of friends."
