More information:

I recently moved to Santa Fe 6/2012 after graduating from residency in Denver. Because I practice Emergency Medicine, my schedule is quite varied and I have frequent mid-week days off. I am married with two children, born in 2009 and 2011 so at the time of this writing ages 1 and 2.

I am a pretty average climber. Although I have been climbing since college, personal and career goals have sometimes kept me from getting on the rock. I have a varied interest in both sport and trad, crag and alpine, ice and rock. My goals for the near future are to spend more half days out on the local crags and then once in shape, travel locally to do alpine routes. Currently I lead in the 5.8 range on gear, and 5.10 sport. I am very safety conscious.

I am looking for partners to check out the local crags or the gym with on midweek days, and eventually to attempt alpine routes with. My wife and I are also hoping to meet some climbing families who would be up for some low-key kid-cragging.
