I live in Grand Junction, CO, but play all over the place, especially in Utah.

I'm down for a wide range of activities, including peak bagging, canyoneering, climbing, mountain biking, road biking, paddling, and more.

I have an odd work schedule, so it can sometimes be hard to plan things.

Experience includes:


10 days, 31 peaks (mostly 13ers, 2 14ers) in the San Juans (incl. Wham Ridge and Jagged)
3 of the 4 traverses (Crestone, Maroon, El Diente-Wilson)
Rainier, Baker, Hood, Shasta
Grand Teton - Owen-Spalding (and Exum in July 2013)
Capitol Peak - Knife Ridge
Pyramid, Sneffels, Uncompahgre, US Grant, Pilot Knob
Mt. Conness - North Ridge and North Peak
Whintey - Mountainers Route
Devils Tower (July 2013)
Wind River Range - Pingora and Wolfs Head (July 2013)


As of June 2013, I've done routes in Escalante, Robbers Roost, North Wash, San Rafael Swell, Zion, and Cedar Mesa, and Arizona and Death Valley.

Including canyons such as:
Lower PINTAC, Egypt 4, Big Tony, Poe/Cricket, Choprock, Pandoras Box, The Squeeze, Imlay, Psycho D, Alcatraz, East Baker, Chambers, Slideanide, Hogs 1-4, Neon and many more...

Very good downclimber and pothole escaper. Can climb and/or lead at 5.9/5.10. Very confident scrambler at C3-low C5 (and have soloed routes at 5.4-5.6, more due summer 2013).


Little Bear/Blanca Traverse!!!
Lone Eagle, Snowmass, Chicago Basin 14ers, 3rd Flatiron, and anything else that sounds interesting

Long Branch
SOS and/or Bishop

Capable company welcome

Hi Bri,
I apologize for the late response, I thought I would be sent notices for these posts. My vacation is pretty full for this year but if I can get some free time later in Sept or Oct I'd definitely be game for something down that way. Otherwise next year I definitely plan on getting down there (finally!). Also expecting an outing to Havasupai next year.

blueshadeRe: canyoneering


Ingrid, I apologize profusely for missing your message... I thought I would receive notification of these posts. If you went to Moab, I hope you had a good time... what did you see? Otherwise, if you haven't, let me know and I would definitely meet up if my schedule allows. There aren't a whole lot of nice slot canyons immediately around Moab, but there is fantastic hiking, mtn biking, and some climbing (though I am much less familiar with the latter).

I am looking into some canyoneering either in Zion or Robber's Roost (West of Moab, indirectly) later in March or April if you are interested.

Again, I apologize. Take care.
