Who I am

I am a southern Arizona rock climber, an American Mountain Guides Association Certified Rock Instructor, and a Professional Climbing Guides Institute Certified Multipitch Guide.  I have been climbing around 130 days per year for 17 years.  

What I do

My goal is to raise the bar of southern Arizona climbing by:

1) producing and distributing excellent, firsthand beta for Cochise Stronghold (Toofast Topos) - our first book is now finished!

2) providing solid, credentialed, and affordable guiding and instruction,

3) restoring and documenting classic traditional climbs in cooperation with the ASCA,

4) role-modeling a ground-up, low impact, traditional ethic in my own climbing,

5) producing equipment to replace climbing hardware as cleanly as possible,

and 6) testing common climbing myths with actual experiences and measurements.
