International Man of Mystery...

My photo
I grew up in the Boston area and lived there until my junior year in high school when I attended the Mountain School, a semester program run by Milton Academy in Vershire, VT. I then attended Colby College in Waterville, ME. During my time at Colby I studied anthropology, spent a semester in Northeast India, and became fluent in Nepali. Before I became a guide I earned my black belt in kenpo karate and taught karate for 6 years. I began guiding in college on the rocky coast of ME with Acadia Mountain Guides and on ice at the International Mountain Climbing School in NH. After graduating I took to the highway and drove from ME to WA for the big mountains and glaciers. I spend my winters in lovely Ouray, CO guiding in the famous ice park. I am currently working towards becoming a certified guide through the American Mountain Guides Association. I live, work and play in the hills and on the rocks. On the rocks both literally and, well, with ice.

Indian Creek Rock

Upon returning from Aconcagua there was only one place to go to get some R and R in the sun, Indian Creek. R an R standing for rock climbing and relaxation. The weather was amazing climbing and belaying in T shirts. The best part was we shared the thousands of climbs in the Creek with one other party. We didn't see a soul climbing the whole time.

Indian Creek is home to world class crack climbing. People come from all over the world to dial-in their crack technique. Indeed it works. After an apprenticeship at Indian Creek cracks anywhere will seem a piece of cake.
