I used to be obsessed with climbing. I trained on sport routes, but since then I've done a lot of trad, bouldering, and even buildering. I don't have a long list of accomplishments. The highest I've attained is a couple of 5.12a routes around LA: Fuzzy Pump at Williamson (which doesn't count in my opinion -- it's really soft), and Urban Struggle at Malibu (apparently it's now rated 5.12b -- clearly not soft.) And I made a brilliant show of following Bird Lew on the classic corner Orestes (24 Aussie -- 5.11?) at Arapiles, Australia -- if only I could have her cool flawless form on lead!!
These days I mostly just scramble around 3rd and 4th class stuff. Here is a list of some of the more interesting peaks I've climbed:
