Chemistry instructor at Clackamas Community College, by way of Vermont, France, The Gambia, Corvallis, and Bellingham. Native of Walla Walla, WA.

I began peak-bagging in the summer of 2010 and immediately got addicted. The P2K lists are my first love, and I'm actively working the Oregon and Washington ones, though the driving distances are starting to slow me down somewhat, so I'm secondarily working on the more expansive prominence-based lists, county prominence peaks, and Oregon's 100 Highest. I'm also preparing to dive into some of the area lists, specifically in the Olympics and Rainier. If you want to work any of these, hit me up and let's get outside together.

My claim to fame is that I'm that guy who posts a GPX track for every single ascent. Every. Single. One. No, they are not always for routes that make sense, but they are always there.
