On his first ever day at the cliffs Paul realized he had found his calling. For the last twenty years he has practiced all types of climbing all over the world. It doesn't matter if he's doing trad, sport, blocs, ice, mixed, alpine or aid, Paul just loves getting outside with his friends and going climbing. "New routes are the most rewarding" from scrubbing a crack in Squamish to slogging up a virgin summit on the Patagonian icecap, "the adventure of a first ascent never gets old."
Some of his most memorable climbs include:
Mt. Fitzroy Canadian Route (First Ascent)
All Along the Watchtower, Bugaboos
Central Tower of Paine Bonnington/Whillans Route
