A Few Words: I'm experienced in technical climbing as well as alpine mountaineering and trekking. My technical skills include trad. leading up to 5.7 and sport leading to 5.11. I've climbed many Colorado 14'ers (Capitol being my proudest and Longs being my most numerous). I've done several alpine routes in the Rockies, and in 1995 summitted the trekking peak, Kala Pataar (18,000+ feet), just west of Mt. Everest. In June 2005, I experienced a real-world crevasse rescue, and then continued on and summitted Mt. Rainier. I love trekking and backpacking with a passion. One of my most cherished mtn. memories is the 50 highest miles of the Colorado Trail between Lake City and Silverton! I love teaching young people and the inexperienced the craft of mountaineering and the art of mountain existence. My heros are Thoreau, Emerson, Muir, Hillary, Messner, Athans, Viesturs, Roach... and the dozens of other inspirational leaders of our craft including the Buddhists of the Khumbu. I'm a pack goat wrangler, so if you ever pass a guy with a couple of heavily packed wethers, that's probably me. I'm an active member of the Alamosa Volunteer Search and Rescue Team covering the Blanca group. We also often help the Saguache County team with rescues/recoveries in the Crestone group. Thanks for checking out my profile, and hopefully our paths will cross above the tree line!
