Claim to Climbing Fame: I am a bodybuilder trapped inside of a stick-figure's body. Well, not really....I guess I just have strong(ish) fingers and I don’t weigh much so I’ve been able to pull my scrawny ass up more than a couple hard routes and boulder problems.
Favorite Climbing Shoe: Dragon – no contest. Best fitting, highest-performance shoe ever built. They excel at all styles of climbing and on any kind of rock, and once you figure out how to really exploit their ridiculously sticky HF rubber, it’s like cheating. The Team 5.10 is a close second and my new choice for hard bouldering.
Favorite Everyday shoe: For stylin’ around town I’m either in some Spitfires or Freerunners. Both have sick style, and are super comfortable. If I’m on the way to the crag, it’s the Freerunner – amazing grip on any surface and of course, great style and comfort.
