Chapter Chair

I grew up in Spokane, WA was introduced to sport climbing in the fall of 2004 as part of a high school sponsored club. Quickly I became well versed in single pitch sport leads and multi-pitch climbing technique. During this time, I was also invited on many multi-day alpine outings on full peaks in the Northeastern Cascades. On these trips I learned basic mountaineering skills such as how to use crampons and an ice axe. I have climbed extensively in Washington State, the American Southwest, California's High Sierra and, most recently, in the Mid Atlantic region (New River Gorge, Seneca Rocks, etc.). My skills include single/multi-pitch sport and traditional climbing and some mountaineering/ice climbing experience. Additionally, I have completed several first ascents of single and multi-pitch rock routes.
