Climbing & Photography
If my website looks different than you remember it's because I redesigned my website in late 2020 when Classic Google sites transitioned to New Google Sites (I spent several days of my recovery from ACL + meniscus surgery pretty much recreating my entire website one page at a time). If you find any broken links, missing images, missing content, weird behavior, difficult to read color schemes, or other errors no matter how trivial, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Also, if you got to my website on a "404 error message", it means that the page you are looking for now has a different URL and you will have to navigate my new website to find it. The page is here somewhere!
If you want to use the Search Box at the top of my website to look for a trip report, it is best to go to the specific state page first. (This is due to the fact that my website is actually 16 different sites merged into one, but the searches are not merged.)
This website is an outpouring of my need to share my experiences and document the world around me. I began the site in 2006 as a means to display my outdoor photography. As my addiction to mountaineering and rock climbing took a firm hold, my photos became more climbing-oriented, and the site evolved into an ever-growing wealth of climbing trip reports. I also use the website as a platform for a variety of unique projects I've dreamed up.
The scope and size of my website might be intimidating to those first discovering it, but I've endeavored to make it logically organized. Or, if you are the adventurous type, just navigate through the pages on a whim and enjoy whatever armchair adventures you find yourself on!
what's on my website
This section is the current focus of my website, and contains numerous detailed climbing trip reports of classic climbs I've done, both close to home in Washington and BC as well as across the western US. Plus a few non-climbing adventures.
Labeled panoramas, posters, photo comparisons, route overlays, articles, statistical studies, drawings, and more unique and creative ways of documenting the world around me!
My website started with a focus on photography, but over the years has switched its focus to climbing trip reports. Nevertheless, in this section of my site you will find well-developed pages for aerial photography and night photography, as well as birds, bugs, flowers, animals, mountains, timelapses, photography roadtrips and more!
