AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Single Pitch Instructor

Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA

I am an avid climber and backpacker who loves taking people outdoors. For more than 30 years, I have been leading wilderness adventures in my backyard here in Virginia and West Virginia.

In addition to being an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, I am also a certified member of the Professional Climbing Instructors' Association and a Wilderness First Responder. I have done cave rescue training with the National Cave Rescue Commission and am a proud member of the National Speleological Society.

I have published two editions of CLIMBING ROCKingham County, a guidebook of local crags around Harrisburg, VA. I also share my thoughts with fellow outdoor lovers and leaders via my quarterly newsletter "GUYdelines".

I very much enjoy working with young people and supporting the next generation of outdoor leaders.

Come and join me for a climb here in the Appalachians anytime. I look forward to showing you all of the best local spots!
