Climbing is too much fun!
I tried every sport and I liked them all…..but it always kept coming back to the whole "yeah, but it's not as fun as climbing" thing. So I just kept doing it. And since 1998, I have done little else. In 99, someone stuck a drill in my hands and I was off to bolt anything that I could find. To this day, my ultimate experience is to find that sweet/crazy/exciting/improbable line, bolt it and climb it…That's what I live for.
