A Few Words: I think I'm best described as a peak bagger/mountaineer, who once did a fair amount of moderate technical climbing. I still take a rope occasionally, but I prefer to climb routes that are just easy enough that I can leave all that heavy gear at home.

I've tended to focus on the California 14ers, doing them all in the winter, and doing them again in spring/summer 2009 after I turned 60. I got in a bit of a rut repeating favorite climbs and not doing much new, so I started working on the SPS list, especially the Mountaineers' peaks. I doubt that I'll ever finish the list, but I'm close to meeting the requirements for Master Emblem.

The photo is the North Peak Couloir on 10-15-08.
