I currently have a finger pulley injury that's keeping me from bouldering and sport climbing.

Deep Creek is located about fifteen minutes from Spokane, WA and features Steep Climbing from 5.11 to 5.14b/c.

This crag offers a unique style of basalt climbing. If you ever get the chance to check out this gem you should stop in and crush out some ultra classic 12's and 13's.
September in Squamish. The alliteration is perfect! The weather is cooling and as a result the slimy granite boulders are regaining their infamous stickiness after a blistering summer.

Last summer I was able to achieve my hardest grade yet, a 5.13d called Division Bell in Chekamous Canyon (about 20 minutes north of Squamish). The plan this summer was to work a route called Pulse, which climbs a harder start into the D-Bell....
"In this wonderful world of racing mountain bikes, I have come a long way and will never stop. This season has been my best yet and a big part has been because of Vixen Racing. With all their help I have been able to attend 19 races, podium 21 times, put 15,000 miles on my van, 1 overseas trip, visit & ride in over 20 different beautiful places, meet 100's of new people and experience World Champs.
