Matt’s Climbing Resume

I’m a recreational mountaineer and focused on the fun of getting out into the mountains with my friends. I love standing on the top of things. In the winter I dabble in backcountry skiing and transition to scrambling and climbing in the shoulder seasons and summer. I’m a new 5.6 trad lead and comfortably lead most 5.7 sport. Downhill skiing is where I started and is where I’m most comfortable.

I am a volunteer leader with the Mountaineers, and have led a variety of scrambles and trail runs with them.

This page is a list of my more notable mountaineering accomplishments. Check out my peakbagger page for the full list of summits, and my mountain project profile for crag climbs.
