I hike 13-20 miles a day depending on terrain and difficulty. My typical hiking trips include 3-4 day section hikes along the AT or day trips in the north east to bag peaks and work on the New England Top 100 list.

Winter Mountaineering:

I started winter mountaineering in 2015. Since then I have summit numerous 4,000 footers in winter and consider myself an advanced enthusiast. Examples of winter ascents include Liberty, Flume, Moosilauke, Hancock + South Hancock, & Jefferson.

Ice Climbing:

I started ice climbing in 2016 and have completed three days of climbing with IME/IMCS. My 2018/2019 season goal is to expand my skills through practice and group trips. I have hard shell boots, crampons, technical ice axes, a harness, helmet, ATC, and a moderate amount of dynamic rope.

Rock Climbing:

I’ve been indoor climbing on and off for year. I am comfortable and experienced belaying, but have not set up top ropes or anchoring from scratch. My 2019 summer goal is to expand my knowledge in these areas. Specific to gear, I have all the basics - a harness, helmet, chalk bag, ATC + carabiners, and shoes.

General Fitness:

I have a good level of fitness. My typical week includes weight training and moderate cardio [2-3 mile run].
