Are you 21 or older and do know how to lead belay and lead trad (ok if only 5.6)? Exception maybe made for proficient sport climbers looking to start leading trad or experienced followers.


What is your proudest lead? or favorite trad or alpine climbs?

Bear Creek Spire, Eastern Sierras,[masked]k'. My favorite is Dappled Mare, three pitches, 5.8+ in J Tree. Flower of High Rank, Suicide Rock, 5.9, two pitches, or a rope stretcher. That runs a close second.

What's on the top of your to lead tick list? or your dream list? (aka too hard or scary right now)

The Vampire, Tahqitz, 5.11a-b. Amazing!! Free solo Cathedral Peak, Toualumne. Lone Peak Cirque. I have seen photos. I can't wait.

Do you certify you will adhere to the I dropped it leading or cleaning I bought it policy? (aka if you drop someone's cam cleaning you owe them a new cam because the one you dropped is yours to keep)

Works for me.

Do you certify climbing is inherently dangerous and understand no member of this group is a guide and you are am always responsible for my own safety?



San Diego transplant. Local to J Tree, Idyllwild and San Diego climbing areas. Experienced trad climber. My hardest trad lead to date is Insomniac on Suicide Rock in Idyllwild. 11a-b.
