Climbing can be used as a personal barometer for what one can achieve; if you can scale a wall, then, seriously? What can't you do? Rock climbing is about problem solving, quelling fears, and ultimately, reward. There is nothing at all quite so satisfying as summiting a challenging climb; as solving the sequence that, just moments ago, was beyond you.
Why do we do it? Not because it's there.
We do it because we can.
Previously a gym-rat in Baltimore, Steve's passion for climbing brought him out west where he's thrown himself at every surface with a vertical inclination. His climbing has taken him throughout the US from Moab to the New River Gorge, from Pennsylvania to Tennessee; additionally, he spent three weeks in the French Alps. One of the aspects of guiding that Steve enjoys the most is being able to introduce people new to the sport to the exhilaration and empowerment of rock climbing.
He also enjoys sharing his enthusiasm [zealotry] with people he wouldn't normally meet, whether they're new to the sport, or experienced climbers visiting the area.
When not climbing, Steve can be found mountain biking, trail-running, and conditions permitting, barreling down a hill with boards strapped to his feet.
