Just a guy who loves Climbing Rocks

People I care about AND I am responsible for.

People I care about AND I am responsible for.

That’s right, I’m just another guy that got hooked on climbing and hasn’t been able to shake it. Personal history aside, I am likely not much different than yourself (assuming you’re reading this on purpose). Statistics would tell us that the vast majority of us are not in a position to make a complete living off of our Rock Climbing prowess. We have real lives and all the responsibilities that go with your definition of Real Life.

But just because we have other things going on doesn’t mean we don’t want to progress in the many aspects of enjoyment this sport offers. You may be the pure Adventurer looking to increase the number of unique locations you have climbed. You may be the Enduro wanting to up the sheer number of pitches you climb in a year. You may be the Adrenaline Junkie pushing your limits in the mental and psychological game. Or you may be like me, the Technical Climber, constantly pursuing your next maximum difficulty level. It is my stance that no matter your discipline; Trad, Sport, Boulder, or Alpine; you and I can incrementally improve the quality (and in many cases the quantity) of the fulfillment we get from the ROCK.

So let’s do it… together. I envision this blog as more than just my climbing journal. I see it as more of a forum of ideas. Share your comments, both agreeable and constructive. Share your blog sites with me and I’ll link ‘em up. Share your successes and lessons learned.
