Most Proud Of:

Of all my achievements, it's the beautiful mountains I've been able to visit, climb, and ski that I am really the most proud of. Lines like the Messner Couloir on Denali, the East Face of the Matterhorn, the West Face of the Eiger, the SE ridge of Baruntse, the Lhotse Face of Everest, and all 54 Colorado 14,000' peaks in a year are what inspire me and keep me motivated and passionate about the sport.
