there’s more to life than just climbing

says the jack of all trades, master of none. but if there’s anything that half a dozen bouldering injuries, three ruptured left ankle ligaments, a car accident, an antero-inferior labrum tear, and shoulder surgery have taught me over the years, it’s that life is too short to be one-dimensional (and master a single trade, as it were). i learned to fall in love with everything else.

in addition to rock climbing (which remains one of my biggest passions), i’ve compiled an extended bucket/hit list that i aspire to tick off as i undertake new, more worldly endeavors:

cycle the friendship highway, tibet/nepal
volcano board on cerro negro, nicaragua
