My grail lies in the high peaks on their steep faces in unknown terrain.

I work hard to push my limits in the amazing mountain venues that our world offers us and to be a positive source of energy amongst the communities I partake in. This world is an amazing place and I do what I can to enjoy, love and protect it.
