What are your mountaineering goals?

Climb at least 12 peaks each year including at least 2 major summits. Climb all of the major Cascade volcanoes. Become a solid 5.11 climber. Climb WI3. Climb C3/A3. Raise my children to be safe, conscientious, and enthusiastic climbers.

What do you want to learn from your being a part of this group?

I want to learn more about snow, glacier, and ice climbing, avalanche safety, routefinding, and leadership.

What skills do you have that can contribute?

I've been climbing for over a decade (and scrambling for 3). I have a fair amount of trad, multi-pitch, and alpine climbing experience - much of it learned the hard way. I have a decent collection of gear. I always bring a camera - photos from many of our trips may be found on

What are some of your mountaineering experiences, if you have any?

100+ summits including the Grand Teton (Exum Ridge - 2005), Mt. Baker (Coleman-Demming - 2011, Squak - 2013, Easton - 2014), Liberty Bell (Becky Route - 2011), Mt. Rainier (Disappointment Cleaver - 2012), The Tooth (South Face - 2012, 2014), Tahquitz Rock (Coffin Nail/Traitor Horn - 2012), Mt. Cowen (NE Arete - 2014), Mt Stuart (W Ridge - 2015).


Climb Leader and Kitsap Intermediate Climbing student (2013). I've been peakbagging since 1986 and climbing since 2004. I work hard and outdoor adventure helps keep me sane.
