I would say most of my inspiration comes from outdoor climbing. I rarely try to recreate specific moves for outdoor climbs, but the movement i experience outdoors seeps into my setting style. One of the best compliments you can give me is, “that felt like an outdoor climb!"
What is your favorite crag snack?
Gouda triskets, summer sausage and cheddar cheese!
What is your current project?
I’ve got two newly bolted climbs that I’m itching to try once the summer heat settles down a little, and I’d also like to get another crack at Dawn of the Dead at Sam’s Throne, weather permitting. That thing is the anti-summer route, so I’ll probably be waiting a while...
If you could eliminate one bad habit that you see climbers do in the gym what would it be?
Not brushing holds!!!! Please please please brush holds. Also, brush off tick marks if you leave any behind after your session!
