David Kay

I'm a trad climber first and foremost, but have started to branch out into bouldering, winter and ice climbing, dry tooling, sport climbing and alpinism.

Grades aren't everything, but they help keep me motivated. My goals for 2014:

- Onsight E3 (COMPLETED)
- Lead a grade V winter route
- Work 7a indoors at MCC (COMPLETED)
- Work 7a outdoors
- Bivy out in the Alps
- 45% days with exercise
- Log 300 routes
- Millstone HVS challenge (all HVS climbs in one weekend)
