During my adult life I have spent more nights outdoors than in.

I have served as an outdoor guide, educator, conservationist, researcher, crew leader and enthusiast from the bear-chomps of Alaska to the rock-falls of canyon country.

Currently working at a remote research station deep in the rain forest of Borneo studying primate ecology.

comment Belly flopping top outs
Form and style are only important if you are alive afterward to brag about it. If someone is going to question your ascent because you belly-flopped, find different climbing partners.
