A Little About Me

I climb mountains. Often, I'm alone.
Dream Climb: Eternal Flame on Nameless Tower. Also, another attempt for Illamani. Then, Grand Jorasses, Alpamayo, Denali, Shivling, Ama Dablam, Taulliraju, and Kosciusko���¢??s ski lift.
Climbs that have influenced my life:: Mt Yipslon (age 9) Longs Peak (north face, age 14) Huayna Potosi, 2000 Killimanjaro, 2001, Elbrus, 2002, Longs Peak (solo, under a full moon), 2005 Grand Teton, 2005 Speahead, 2006, Notchtop, 2006, 2007, Petit Grepon, 2008, West, Ridge, Mt Conness, 2013, Mt Rainier, 2014
Why I dont climb Colorado 14's (other than Longs):: I believe the thousands of people who focus solely on a list of mountains that hold some arbitrary number attached (14,000), most of which are ugly, uninspiring choss piles, lack vision and do not fully understand the beauty of climbing mountains. They ���¢??tick���¢?? off the peaks like some score card, and do not climb for themselves. ���¢??Peak Baggers���¢?? are not mountaineers; they are glorified, ego-driven tourists who have strong legs but a weak heart.
