3. Climbed "Ancient Melodies" on Exfo Dome in January

4. Had one of the best trips of my life to Pasyten Wilderness which included a magical FA we called "Faith" up an unclimbed face with Mr. Rad Roberts

5. Enjoyed a wonderful trip up Northwest Corner with my woman, her first year of climbing and first real multi-pitch


2016 goals

3 - Met some new partners and have planted the seeds for adventures to share in 2016.

4 - Kids are starting to get into climbing, did some comps, and have qualified for Divisionals next weekend in Portland.

5 - Got to do a VW slide show with several other cascade alpine new routers. Great turnout, great energy.
