I am a: male mountaineer
Location: Washington
Occupation: Chemist


Backcountry skiing
Ice climbing
Rock climbing

I have and continue to enjoy backpacking in the Wind River Range, High Sierra, and Cascades. Most of the time I'm scrambling or climbing but in winter I teach Nordic skiing. I have done all of these activities for a long time so often teach classes with my local climbing club.

Gear is a means to enjoy myself safely and comfortably. I have lots of old gear that I enjoy but.... am always interested in hearing about the marketing hype around the latest greatest.
