More information:
Climbing-wise, I've been at it since '94, at first in California and now the past years in CO. I consider myself a prudent climber, drawn primarily to long alpine lines. Someday I want to climb an alpine peak in lederhosen, a wool sweater, and hobnailed boots just to see how those Golden Age climbers did it (no hemp rope though... too chicken for that).
