More Info:
Started climbing in 1970, at age 14, and continued through 80’ while going to college in upstate NY. Then took 20ish years off - starting up again in 2003. A lot has changed: Skytop is no longer open; there are women climbers now! (Title IX did it’s job); what was considered "Rad" 20 years ago is now called "Trad”; bolts that were anathema when I first started are now commonplace much to my horror. I am at heart a “Rad/Trad” climber. My long-term companion, Masha, and I are in the process of building the house of our dreams out in the country.
