Hometown: Portland, OR

The physical and mental challenge; the meditative focus; being outdoors and one with the rock; the camaraderie with fellow climbers. I love the puzzle and problem solving challenges of trad and multi-pitch climbing (always seems like the adventure stories come from these climbs...)
On sight 5.11 sport leads, be relaxed and comfy with 5.10 trad. My ultimate goal is to be a 5.12 sport climber and I'd be really happy with solid 5.10+ trad comfort zone. Gotta train the mind for that stuff...
I'm an adventurer by spirit. I climb, backpack, paddle, ski, scuba dive, and enjoy the wilderness. But, rock climbing has crossed that line into passion. I climb sport, trad, and multipitch.
