I work for myself so I schedule my work around climbing. I'm married and my husband is not a climber, so I prefer to climb during the weekday when my absence is not as noticeable. Since I have to schedule work around climbing, I plan my calendar a week to two weeks ahead of time; no spontaneous climbing trips!
I began bouldering indoors regularly since 2008, top roping pretty consistently since 2011 both indoors and out, and leading sport outdoors since June 2012 (about two days a week, seven to eight months per year). I took a series of sport lead classes at the Upland Hangar 18 in January 2012. I usually belay with a Cinch but I am also familiar with using the ATC Guide.
I started to second some trad routes since June 2013 and completed the SCMA Rock Climbing Safety Skills Course in April 2014.
I absolutely love long multipitch sport routes (working toward doing Squawstruck in Provo, UT one day). I like to learn trad as I enjoy climbing chimneys and some cracks (unlike most climbers, I prefer fist jams and off-widths rather than hand jams).
