I am 20 years old as of November 2017. I am an avid peakbagger, rock climber, mountain climber, and downhill skier. In 2010 at the age of 12, I set a goal of becoming the youngest person to climb the 20 primary cascade volcanoes. On September 20, 2015 I finished my goal on the summit of Broken Top at the age of 17 years, 298 days.

My hardest 3 climbs so far have been:

Gannett Peak due to the almost 12000 feet of elevation gain and loss plus the 52 mile RT hike
Mount Jefferson due to our early season ascent and the technical aspects introduced due to that
Mount Rainier due to its 9,000 feet of elevation gain and the technical glacier travel involving snow brides and ladders across crevasses

You can read my detailed trip reports for most of my climbs in my ascent lists. Some may also notice that I have added a number of peaks to the database that I have not climbed. I hate it when people add peaks without climbing them and with no prominence reported. Because of that, I have added peaks I intend to climb. I will be climbing all the peaks that added and leaving information on how to climb them to go along with the prominence values that I’ve already noted. If you find any errors in my prom calculations or trip reports, please contact me and let me know and I will get them fixed right away!
