I’ve been climbing for 12 years, and setting for 11 years. I lived in an old ambulance for several years, traveling all over the US, Canada, and Mexico.
I am also a ginger… #gingerpower
I love the STEEPS! The steeper the climb, the higher the psych.

I basically lived in Hueco Tanks for years, and will always feel at home there. It definitely has a special place in my heart. I also love Font. It is one of the most magical places I have ever been.

John has always followed his bliss and loves how climbing helps him “get his sparkle on” in the same way as meditation. He has a bachelor’s degree in Music Composition, a teacher training cert. in Qigong, and is excited to see how all of his various passions come together to form the masterpiece of his life.
Power climbing! He really shines on the overhangs and if there’s pinches involved, he’s in Paradise.

I started climbing 8 years ago and haven’t stopped since. Primarily focused on sport climbing and bouldering, I’ve been as far as Thailand in pursuit of my love for the sport. Originally from Monterey, I am new to the area and always happy to meet new people.
My climbing style has evolved into an even mix of dynamic and static movements and I’m always looking to increase the efficiency of my technique and movement. I have a lot of experience adapting sequences to different body types and skill levels so feel free to ask for help!

I have been setting for just over six years. In the day-to-day scheme, the idea for me is to use setting as a way to teach movement skills and the basics of climbing. It is a great creative outlet, and another way in which I like to engage our climbing community. Also Head coach of the PG Belmont Youth Climbing Team.
Sequencing, compression, and technical climbs.
Smith Rock for sport climbing, and the Tahoe area for bouldering.
