A Few Words: I've been climbing Wasatch Peaks much of my life, having lived mainly along the Wasatch Front, with a few years in southern Idaho and a season in Summit Co Colorado. My favorites are long ridge runs such as The Beatout, Cottonwood Ridge and the Timp ridge. I back country ski during winter season, doing a few peaks but mainly yoyo stuff. I've served my time on the Wasatch Mountian Club Board of directors President, Hiking Director, Conservation Director and Trustee.
