I’ve been climbing since 2003. I surfed for about 10 years until a friend from church took me climbing and that was it…I don’t surf anymore. I enjoy climbing for all the obvious reasons like being in nature, a love for the mountains, physical exercise, a challenge, a sense of adventure, having great experiences with like minded people and just ‘cause the gear is so cool! I always come away from the mountains smiling. The grades allow me to measure my progress and set quantifiable goals. This goal oriented mindset spills over into all other areas of my life, be it work, studies, exercise or faith and keeps me psyched for life as a whole. I’ve climbed 24 on sport and 20 on trad and look forward to constantly progressing while having a blast in the mountains with nice people. My most memorable send would have to be Magnetic Wall on Table Mountain. I was super scared and almost pumped out 4 meters above my last placement, but ended up onsighting it. STOKED!
