From Mediterranean Rock to an El Nino Winter

In the past months since updating the website, life has been full of adventure and excitement.  Jen and I traveled to Greece for 3 weeks of steep limestone sport climbing, and had an amazing experience.  The climbing is extraordinary 3 dimensional tufa climbing, and is really a paradise on earth.  With over 2,500 established routes at all grades there is something for everyone and so we had a great time scootering around the island of Kalymnos with friends new and old, climbing til our arms gave out and then coming back to the small village of Massouri for more sumptuous Greek meals. 

We moved on to Instanbul for a final few days of sightseeing and stuffing our faces even more thanks to the unbelievable desserts the Turks are known for.

Now home in Mammoth Lakes, winter seems like it is really happening, and I have been super busy with AIARE Avalanche Courses (there are still spaces available for upcoming programs in Feb and March), ice climbing, and some of the best backcountry skiing days in a number of years.  Don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in taking your skiing into the BC, Sierra Mountain Center is again running left-served programs off the back of June and Mammoth Mountain, and the conditions are great!
