I really enjoy backpacking and climbing. The mountains are amazing! You can find a lot of trip reports on this page.


The trips I underlined are the more "major" trips I've undertaken. I am still working on some of the trip reports, check out the ones that are up! I also like to go hiking after school.

I got into climbing a bit more recently, nothing hard core though...
  • Mt. Dana (May '18) [summitted]
  • Mt. Shasta (June '18) [did not summit]
  • Mt. Shasta (June '19) [summitted]
