I climbed every day consecutively for 365 days on a transcontinental rock and ice climbing expedition from January 16 2012- January 15 2013.

I climbed a total of 79,419 feet of elevation gain (over 15 miles or the distance from sea level to Everest 2.7 times) averaging 217 feet per day.

I climbed routes of all types, up to 5.12b in difficulty and completed a one-day ascent of Moonlight Buttress, a 1200 foot big wall climb in Zion National Park.

In doing so I partnered with other T1 climbers and organizations to help create awareness and empowerment for Diabetes.
