Vertical Endeavors St. Paul
About Me: The one thing you should know about me is, I like talking about fishing more.
Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa
Climbing Since: Crimping since 2002
Favorite Type of Climbing: Low ball bouldering, all joking aside, I’m talking real low.
Favorite Climbing Area: I do enjoy the boulders of Devils Lake, WI- the crew out there is constantly establishing and sharing new climbs.
What I love about climbing: Finding new and/or trying out new areas.
Other Interests: Besides fishing I am also interested in climbing short rocks.
Interesting Facts: I often tell many very uninteresting stories.
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.
