Jack of all styles, master of none, a lover of sketchy gear, long runouts and fighting grade inflation, one petty argument at a time. Long time slackline hater.

I also avoid the world of "real" work by studying glaciers, how they melt and the microbes that live on them.


Best Climbing Experience
Finishing off Diagonal in the dark after a 7.30 (pm) start in early May. At least we planned for it!

About My Photography
Finally upgraded from borrowing other people's cameras and using auto to getting a dSLR, which I often leave at home/in the car/at the bottom*, resulting in bad, blurry phone pictures.
