I first started climbing in the Flatirons in high school in the early ‘90s when my friends and I would tromp through the woods and test our very limited climbing skills. During those early experiences, I began to appreciate how much it means to climb and recreate in such a beautiful setting. Later on, I also saw some of the issues climbers had with land managers and the community, and I was impressed with the FCC’s diplomatic and effective approach to preserving climbing access. I wanted to get involved and I became a FCC board member in 2008 and I served as FCC President from 2014 – 2017. It has been a great experience to work with the City to establish access, develop classic new routes and build sustainable trails to our favorite crags.
