Tell us about your backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking experience.

I lead a lot of technical canyoneering and backpacking trips every year. Most involve long and grueling hikes over difficult terrain and conditions.

What's been your favorite destination to date?

Located on the north rim near Lava Falls, Cove Canyon is one of the most remote places in the Grand Canyon. 3 days, 14 rappels, a 5 mile pack raft and a final hike up an extinct volcano, Vulcan's Throne.

What's been your toughest trip in the last 2 years? Why?

Boulder Creek Technical Canyon in the Grand Canyon. We did this as a day trip. 27 miles and 22 hours non-stop, 13 miles approach, several hours in the canyon, a 5 mile pack raft down the Colorado River and a 10 mile hike up Bright Angel. Started at 4:30AM and finished the next day at 2:30AM.

Where would you like to go backpacking, canyoneering, or hiking that you haven't gone?

Next on my list is 150 mile Canyon, Olo River, Matkat and Panameta in the Grand Canyon. This would be completed in one trip.
