Welcome to
SummitJunkie.net
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.

"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
