I have just returned from an exhausting 6 day course with eight 7th graders. We explored the canyons of Utah while shivering in our sleeping bags through unexpected snow and 12 degree temperatures. It was awesome. The kids' attitude and willingness to push on was impressive!!

From there the road trip was to bring me back home to Colorado. One of my favorite climbing partners, Prairie and I, stopped for a quick morning climb in Zion. Our drive was to take us from Vegas through Zion, Monument Valley and Grand Gulch. I wanted to check out water and road conditions of the canyon I would be guiding.

All this climbing talk brings me to some exciting news! I have been climbing my heart out for over a decade and this February I applied to be a Trango athlete. Trango weeded through a bazillion applications of more accomplished and much stronger climbers, and yet chose me to represent them!!!!
I am thrilled to be apart of this Colorado based and thoughtful company. I am over-joyed to share my passion with others, to be recognized as an ambassador for the sport, and to represent Trango!
