Outdoors preferably, TR or lead! Otherwise, when I'm in the bay PG Sunnyvale or The Studio. My family lives in South San Jose.
First climbed when I was 14 in the Ansel Adams wilderness! Outdoor anything, slabs, arrets, cracks, I'm getting better (slowly) at overhangs. Favorite place I've climbed so far (besides Yosemite of course) is the New River Gorge West VA.
Taking calculated and reasonable risks. I used to work as an instructor at the rock gym at my college so I'm an extremely competent top rope belayer/teacher and I am getting better at lead climbing. I like to push myself but I climb within my limits and don't mind calling for a take, listening to advice and learning from those more knowledgeable then myself!

Just got back into climbing after a 5 year hiatus! I live in FL but visit the bay (I'm from San Jose) 4-5 times a year and love climbing outdoors. If I'm in town I'm down for whatever.
