Most Memorable Climb
2:08 Bridge to Bridge on the Naked Edge in Eldorado Canyon, CO
Favorite Climbing Spot
My local favorite is the Flatirons and travel destination is the New River Gorge.
My attention may not stay focused on one thing very long, but my psych is always high. I grew up in the Midwest and would climb anything I could, anytime. I’ve gotten pickier with age and with the better selection I now have by living in Colorado, but I still venture into the obscure sometimes. The time of day is my most obscure climbing pattern – I love talking a partner into a 5am session on a local project or even a pre-work jaunt up the Naked Edge. I call it “Ninja Tactics,” and for a working man, it’s the best way to get in some serious outdoor mileage. As much as we all might love to have no responsibility other than climbing, I find the balance pretty special, and I love sharing my motivation to have it all. So set your alarm clock for 4am, and meet me in Eldo. It’s gonna be worth it.[full bio]
