Biography

"1. Come home alive. 2. Come home friends. 3. Come home with a summit!"

Growing up in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains, adventure and athletics were always at the foreground of my life. While attending the University of Washington, I was introduced to climbing amidst a difficult pursuit of school and the demanding practice schedule of the university’s varsity rowing program. In the same way that I approached the rigors and routine of a fulltime collegiate athlete, my training and passion to push myself segued into my pursuit as a climber.

Fourteen years later I am constantly training for the most beautiful, difficult, remote, technical faces in the world. Be it rock, ice, or mixed I love them all.

In the last several years I have free climbed El Capitan in a single day, mixed climbed M11, put up first ascents all over North America, Asia, and Patagonia and repeated one of Alaska’s most difficult grade 6 routes.

For me going climbing is always easy, the biggest challenge is maintaining that symbiotic life balance of work, passion, and relationships.
