A Few Words:

Note: I don't check my PMs regularly, so try email if you need a quick response.

I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and I spent several great years going to college in Utah. These days I'm a software engineer in Silicon Valley. I work during the week, so I mostly get out on the weekends.

When in doubt, I usually take the safe way out. Better to run away and play another day, I say. All technical climbing involves risk, and I'm comfortable with that. I'm just not comfortable with being stupid.

See you out there!

  • Mountaineering. I have basic avalanche and glacier travel skills.
  • Sport climbing. I'm pretty conservative about leading (only up to 5.7 or 5.8), but I can follow or TR harder routes. I used to climb pretty often in Rock Canyon in Utah.
  • Canyoneering. I discovered canyoneering in 2007, and I love it! I've done a few canyons in Zion and the Swell. I was lucky to live in Utah where so many amazing canyons were so close. I miss them.
  • Snowshoeing.
  • Skiing. (but I haven't really done it much recently)
  • Hiking and backpacking.

I'd like to learn trad climbing and ice climbing.
