Memories From First Climb
The memory was just the excitement that I got invited to climb with the AdAmAn Club! I remember looking up at the peak on New Year's Eve dreaming...."I'd like to be up there some day."

I'll have to come back in about a month and update this one.

Memories of Favorite Gear
I have grown to love my Patagonia R-1 Hoodie. I could wear it everyday all day. In fact, I am wearing it right now as I write this Bio. I kid you NOT!
Memories of Worst Gear Failure
I climbed Phoenix Peak, a 13er near Creede, CO in the dead of winter (February.) We started at 5:00am and due to snowshoeing through deep snow, we didn't reach the summit until after 4pm as the sun was setting. On the way back in the cold, winter night, a snowshoe blew apart. With only cordelette to tie it back together, the sharp snowshoe edge kept cutting it. We didn't get back to the car until 1:30am that night making for a long 19 1/2 hour-long winter summit attempt. However, we WERE successful!
