Claim to Climbing Fame: er I'm famous? I'm most proud of having done a pair of v14s in Fontainebleau. First ascents mean a lot to me. My favorite areas are Fontainebleau, Yosemite, Mt. Evans and the desert. Favorite Climbing Shoe: Most of the time the Jet 7s; they perform on all types of rock, and all angles. When I'm climbing steep granite I prefer the Team shoe, and for multi-pitch routes I love the 5x. Favorite Everyday shoe: The Impacts, they have cushion for skateboarding, tread for free riding and grip for climbing. The Daescent is my favorite slackline/grocery getting shoe.
