About Me: Married for 16 years with 2 girls; 13 and 10. Climbing has been a major aspect of my life for almost 20 years. For many years I was focused on climbing harder and more aggressive lines. This has moved to a focus on the experience and enjoyment of the climb. This has led to longer less difficult climbs that have a cool feature or in an interesting setting.

Best Climbing Story/What I love about climbing… To date my happiest moment climbing was when I topped out on Devils Tower in WY with my 12 year old daughter.

About Me: I don’t always dyno, but when I do, I dynosoar. (terrible, yet so good)
Avid mattress back who spends most of his time slinging plastic or eating Cheezits. On the daily grind to supply the movement that sets the mood for any and all climbers! Can’t find me in the gym? My son and I are lost in a boulder field. Don’t come find us. Have a question about that sick project? Don’t hesitate to ask me for the beta I won’t give you. : )

What I love about climbing: it never lets up
