This site is a lot of things.  It’s therapy.  It’s a passion for bouldering and rock climbing.  It’s a beginner’s path to enlightenment (or the light at the end of the tunnel…wait…is that a train?!?!).  Mainly, it is a collection of humor, good days, bad days, probably some uglies, and my life in general as a sport climber and boulderer, with my ultimate goal being to become a true alpinist.  And yes, boulderer is a word.  So please enjoy!!!
