Gripped - - 10 QUESTIONS -

What was your first alpine climb? The South Ridge of Gimli. I wore ag­gres­sive sport climb­ing shoes and left my ap­proach shoes at the base of the route not re­al­iz­ing the de­scent was a walk off. 27

Any crazy sto­ries about be­ing be­nighted? No I’ve had a few big pushes up to hours but have not yet been be­nighted.

I’ve been work­ing on di­ver­si­fy­ing my climb­ing and not just fo­cus­ing on phys­i­cally get­ting stronger. I’ve been de­vel­op­ing the skills re­quired to lead scary tra­di­tional mixed routes on gran­ite faces, lime­stone choss and steep ice.
