I’m originally from the flatlands of eastern Nebraska. I moved around a bit but arrived in Colorado about fifteen years ago and started climbing soon thereafter. Boulder Direct on the Wind Tower was the first route I ever led; somehow I survived the experience and came to appreciate the style of climbing that the canyon offers. Although I’ve climbed about 400 different routes in Eldo, I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface: so many classic, tricky, runout, chossy climbs, so little time!


I’m psyched for the opportunity to give back to the park and to help preserve the unique character of the climbing there.
