I grew up in a sailing town just north of Boston so pretty much anything that "gets me wet" including mixology!. As a kid dropping out of dinghy racing I needed something to stimulate me. So I started climbing at about age 14. I learned to climb on and around the sea boulders and crags of North shore Boston/ Cape Anne area. When I was barely 17 I dropped out of high school and moved to N.Conway N.H by the end of the summer (78') I was leading solid 5.9 and decided it was time for my first pilgrimage. fall 78' was my first season in the "Valley"
I subsequently had my 18, 19, 20, and 21st birthdays in Camp4. I climbed for a lifestyle until I was about 23. Then I moved to Hawai'i where I lived (and did not climb at all) for the better part of 20 years.
Just this past spring (07') I got back into climbing. I now live in the Vegas area so I guess I have to live with sandstone as a primary medium. I spent a week on the granite of Squamish this past August and it was like "old home week" being able to stick my hands into a quality, granite crack again.
Even though I have climbed in the Gunks, Eldorado, Moab, Red Rocks and many other non granite areas...
As my good friend has been telling me for 30 yrs.
"though shalt not forsake the mother sport" and...
"Granite is the preferred medium for the mother sport!'
