My climbing adventures began as an officer candidate at BYU in the R.O.T.C. program. Climbing is an outdoor activity I have enjoyed doing, off and on, for the past thirty-five years. Even though I was encouraged to keep a climbing log, I never did. The majority of my climbing partners kept them, but I erroneously reasoned "all that paperwork" was a waste of time for a myriad of reasons... how I regret that decision!

It's not so much about remembering and reminiscing over the actual climbs, but the details associated with those climbs. It would be gratifying to remember who I was with, what I was thinking or how I felt during that single time in my life, what the day was like and if anything exciting happened, what terrain feature we climbed, and how we climbed it.

I have set a personal goal to climb the highest peak in each of Utah's counties beginning July, 2016. This activity is also a good excuse to explore the state I've lived in for the majority of my life and know relatively little. I'll most likely go beyond this list, but it will be a good starting point.
