1. Trip Reports
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 20 different sites merged into one, but the searches are not merged.) Scroll below to links to state pages.

Mountains in my Blood
Mountain adventure has always been a part of my life. My parents met while backpacking in the Olympic Mountains in the summer of 1974, and proceeded to spend much of the 70s and early 80s trekking around Washington's rugged ranges. I was born in May 1983, and just three months later they took me on my first overnight backpacking trip near Mt. Temple, Alberta; I was eaten alive by bugs, but reportedly I had a smile on my face the entire time. My first real alpine climb was at the age of 11, when my dad and I climbed Overhanging Tower in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. My technical climbing skills developed during my undergraduate years (2002-6) at Stanford University, situated just a few hours from Yosemite. Since then, I have lived numerous days following and continuing my parents' boot tracks, mountaineering and climbing all over western North America. At this point, I cannot imagine a life without climbing.
My website provides trip reports for numerous big climbs and multiday mountain expeditions, as well as a few exciting roadtrips and aerial photography adventures. No matter how tough or long the climb, my camera and insatiable need to document always come along, so my trip reports contain plenty of photos and beta.
Navigation of my Trip Reports
You can navigate my trip reports in 3 main ways:
trip report stats
The white graphs on the left show the Number of Trip Reports vs. Year, State, and Season.
The grey graphs on the right show the Number of Days vs. Year, State, and Season. These numbers are higher than the number of trip reports, since most of my trip reports span more than just one day of adventuring.
The following tables show the same information that is presented in the graphs above.
The table below summarizes all of my trip reports by year, location, and season.
