I began climbing rocks 18 years ago, and my passion for climbing carried me through nearly all the various aspects of climbing; eventually becoming “full circle” and into the high mountains of the earth. It has always been a childlike enjoyment for climbing that has kept me engrossed and loving.
Delicious, long lasting, and healthy full meal bars that go everywhere and can be eaten anytime.
When Not Adventuring
I am the co-owner of Higher Ground Coffee in Salt Lake City, UT. My friend, Ty Snelling and I purchased the 600-square ft shop in 2009 and after the last several years have grown the tiny place into a favorite hangout for Salt Lake City coffee drinkers. Owning a business, investing our time and energy into it, and seeing it grow is just as rewarding as climbing any mountain.
I would like to continue to push the difficulty of alpine climbing in the Karakorum mountains in Pakistan. And someday explore new routes on 8000 meter peaks.
