Specs

I’ve been climbing on and off since 2006/2007.  I stand at 5 feet 7 inches, currently weigh about 155 lbs, and I have a +2 wingspan.  Without a doubt, I have to crank pretty hard just to climb at an intermediate level.

As such, it is no secret that I have fallen in and out of love with climbing many times.  These bouts of interest and obsession have been punctuated 321818_2209012822190_1124379898_owith either unmanageable egotism or injury.  Injuries tend to be the most debilitating, both mentally and physically.  One of the most difficult was a lower back sprain while the most disappointing was cutting into my own left index finger with a bread knife – yes, a bread knife, and slicing my extensor tendon.

Then, the least surprising of all my injuries, a compression fracture of the left proximal humerus.  This injury was not surprising as it had been acquired when a car hit me while I was riding my motorcycle.  In this regard, I was extremely lucky that my injuries were not worse and I’m pretty grateful that I have excellent bone density.  Thanks Mom.

I’ve been many places Utah, Oregon, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mexico, Alabama, Nevada and parts of the Caribbean to climb. I love bouldering, a lot.
