Climbing Experience Detail


Memories From First Climb
I was really impressed when my old skiing buddy, Ed Kirches, mentioned that he was an AdAmAn.  I had always thought those guys were super-human, so I had to find out all about the group from someone "first-hand."  With his invitation to climb, I had the privilege of getting to know the most interesting and diverse men and their stories in Colorado.
