|More information:|Hi, I started climbing in 1988. I strive to climb a little of everything and be a well-rounded climber... which is to say I've never excelled at any one type. Generally shying away from the rock gym helps avoid tendon injuries. In recent years, I made some of my goals climbing a few destinations around the world, and of course some good Eldo routes and some sweet ice routes. Not doing any testpieces lately, but looking forward to some weekend warrioring and nights around the campspot shooting the breeze with buddies.
|The Big Splash 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b
Oct 17 - Created via the removal of a couple flakes. Readily done as a single pitch.

Oct 17 - Only noticed & did P1, it felt like .10c on the first move & .10a otherwise. Pretty nice.
Fantasy Ridge 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a
Jun 22 - Not three stars by any stretch of the imagination. One 5.9 move, and 2.5 pitches long.
