1. North Ridge of Baker with Ski Descent

2. Full Summit Ski Descent of Baker, Adams, St Helens, and Glacier Peak

3. Sloan Peak (Simple Screw Route)

My favorite thing this year was keeping the BORA 80 in the garage and doing everything in a day.


Even though this caused 2 big failures for myself and partners, especially the ERD on Forbidden and Clark Mountain, but we got damn close to both. frown.gif


The next best thing is finding out my wife and I are gonna have a baby girl on November 12th grin.gif

1) The couple days I spent climbing with my uncle up some easy classics on Lumpy Ridge, CO. (climbs he last climbed in the early 70s)


2) Second ascent of Gato Negro on Whine Spire, West Face Silver Star w/bobbyperu. Apparently we got the FA on the direct finish on the 11th pitch?


3) Sold my place, quit my job, moved to where I want to be.
