About me

I do sport, trad and toprope climbing with my climbing partner Fritz and occasionally other people. Almost all of my climbing has been in the Southwestern part of United States. I don't do snow and ice climbing anymore and I like to do my climbing where it's warm.

I like to find new routes in new places in Northern New Mexico, even if they are funky or obscure. I find desert climbs (those that I can do) to be fascinating.

I recently realized that I climb as much for the camaraderie and climbing with friends as managing to get to the top.
