Outdoor Resume

You can find a (possibly updated) outdoor resume here. If you want to get out on a climb or trip and think we would be a good fit let me know!

Trip Reports

I used to constantly find myself wishing I had better notes. As I plan, I know I have been on similar terrain in similar conditions. How long did it take me? What did I do wrong? What clothes should I wear or how much food should I bring?

These trip reports are an attempt for me to catalog this information and learn from my mistakes. As a result, you will find attempts alongside successes. I try to write down notes from reports that were noteworthy, or where I learned something.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to document everything so this is kind of a sampling of trips. I know that if I set out to write full trip reports I just won’t do it… I have a pile of unorganized trip report notes going back several years to prove it. Therefore, if anyone reading this wants more information on a particular objective, feel free to reach out via email (johnsigmon@gmail.com) and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Some of these are also probably on Strava or Instagram.
