Mt. Sherman - 14,036ft
What a year it has been for me! I got a lot of climbing in, especially multi-pitch climbing!
The winter brought lots of ice climbing at Mt. Willard. I had the best opportunity to second my buddy Jeff as he took me on many of the ice climbs on Mt. Willard.

I did many more multi-pitch climbing well into the Spring. In all to get prepared for climbing in Colorado! I and 4 buddies (Jeff, Geoff, Kevin and Kevin), spent 9 days in the gorgeous Colorado Rockies! I got to summit a 14,000 footer (Mt. Sherman) and multi-pitch rock climb in the 11-Mile Canyon. But backpacking and camping 5 days and 4 nights in the wilderness was my favorite part of the trip....it was absolutely glorious!
