The purpose of this website is to chronicle my adventures as a Sierra peak bagger and mountaineer.
My goal is to create a record of my climbs and to share my adventures with anyone interested.
I am always looking for partners on these journeys. I can be reached at SummitJunkie@gmail.com.
I adhere to a strict Leave No Trace policy on all of my back country adventures.

I am currently working on a number of peak lists.
You can find details about these lists and my progress here:

"The mountains are calling and I must go."
~ John Muir
Wander a whole summer if you can. Thousands of God's blessings will search you and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted. If you are business-tangled and so burdened by duty that only weeks can be got out of the heavy laden year, give a month at least. The time will not be taken from the sum of life. Instead of shortening, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal.
- John Muir
"Nevermore, however weary, should one faint by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day; Whatever his fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, he is rich forever"
~ John Muir
LIFETIME SUMMIT COUNT:
It is better to carry a clear head on your shoulders than a big pack on your back.
