More information:
Moved to Tucson in 2008. I've been climbing since the early nineties and like all types of rock climbing, but my first love is long backcountry routes of any difficulty. So far Southern AZ hasn't disappointed.

Been battling injuries for the last couple years but still climbing semi-regularly right now.

Good view of the final, spectacular arÍte of Full Circle. Taken from the "grand traverse" ledge.  Photo topo of the route with belay stations and descent rap tree marked.   Chains at upper right of block for maximum leverage. Yikes!  About to embark on the trip that resulted in the first ascent. From left to right: Joanna McComb, Dan Jones, Matts Myrhman.
