Gripped - - 10 QUESTIONS -

What’s been your goal in climb­ing the past few years?

Any spe­cific train­ing for the trip? Yes, there is al­ways train­ing. I plan to climb some big­ger Rock­ies alpine routes and lo­cal link-ups this sum­mer. I’m also go­ing to Squamish and Yosemite this fall.

What has been one of most mem­o­rable alpine ex­pe­ri­ences? Climb­ing the South But­tress of Mount Loki on Baf­fin Is­land with Anna Smith, who passed away this year. I will never for­get Anna con­stantly laugh­ing and rolling smokes at each be­lay. We had many ad­ven­tures on that trip.
