My passion is for vertical pursuits. In order of interest they are - alpine rock, ice climbing, general mountaineering, and rock climbing. I am very involved with access issues. I'm Chair of the AMC's Access and Chair the Queen Creek Coalition.
I have climbed all over the US, mainly in the West, Canada, and Europe. I seem to have a regular schedule of ice climbing in CO, a tour of Red Rocks, then Tahquitz, then usually fit in the Canadian Rockies, then Red Rocks, and then start over.
I prefer the sharp end when I climb and lead multipitch 5.8, up to 5.10 sport, Water Ice 4, and expeditions.
