Are you currently a member of the AMC? How did you hear about the AMC?

Yes. Learned about the AMC through the APE Index Rock Climbing Gym.

What is your level of climbing expertise? (Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced) What sort of gear do you own?

Beginner to Intermediate on most 5.7 -5.8, some 5.9s. Overall climbing goal are 5.10s. Currently, my gear consists of the basics: helmet, harness, shoes, rope, draws, slings, etc.

Where have you climbed before? Where would you like to climb?

All of the past climbs since 2008 were in Upstate New York - Adirondacks; college rock gym and various outdoor locations. Recently completed the AMC McDowell Sven Wall / Little Granite Mountain and Grad Climb at the Praying Monk. Very interested in exploring other new climbing sites in AZ. I have since climbed at Pinnacle Peak, Queen Creek Canyon, Jack's Canyon,Watson Lake (Prescott), Mt. Lemmon, and The Overlook (Sedona). Very interested in exploring other new climbing sites in AZ.

Have you ever taken a class for "Outdoor Rock Climbing" or are you interested in taking one?

Yes. Completed college level Rock 1 and 2 climbing courses in 2009 while on faculty / staff at Upstate New York University. These courses just covered the basics. To-date have completed the AMC ORC Spring 2012 course which also covered basic + emergency situations and escaping the belay. In the Fall 2015 also completed Anchors and Lead Climbing schools.

Would you consider becoming an AMC outing leader?

Do not know at this time. However, I have been a volunteer instructor during the Basic Climbing School sessions.


A real urban cowboy - originally from New York City. Through college and three careers did not do much climbing; some hiking. Introduced to rock climbing in 2008 and have been climbing indoors and outdoors ever since. Love to hike and climb.
