More information:
I am a guide with Alpine Endeavors. I live on the west side of the Shawangunk Ridge, just a few miles from the West Trapps parking area.

I started climbing in CT in 1984. My folk's house is close to Pinnacle Rock, Ragged Mt. and a number of other small crags. CT was a great place to get turned on to climbing because there is such a long history of climbing there and even then had a well developed community with lots of experienced climbers around. The routes in CT tend to be hard for their grades and tough to protect on lead and the group I came up around had a clear ethic about leading things on sight as always being the goal. Every time I toprope one of these 5.10's that we were leading when we were kids I am blown away at the difficult and daring nature of the climbs.

I moved to New York four years ago after living in Boulder, CO for ten years. We live in a great spot with some of the sweetest rock anywhere but I miss Boulder.

I earned this battle scar the old fashioned way, in an off width.  Third pitch of Ixtlan.  It took weeks to heal and seemed to get bumped and scraped against everything in sight before finally getting enough scar tissue to pad the nerve endings; boo hoo!  Jon Crefeld on the thin first pitch crux of Ixtlan.  Jon Crefeld on Risky Business.  Richard Vlasak near end of last of Sunflower with shadow of Mt. Wilson stretching out over the mouth of Oak Creek Canyon.  Richard Vlasak on Tuna and Chips, First Pullout in Calico Basin.
