For the past decade, Mike has been exploring the southeast’s wilderness honing a backpack, a sketchbook, or a climbing rope. As a father, husband, artist, teacher and climbing guide, he has been trying his damnedest to kick his filthy climbing habit. To mitigate this strange addiction, he prefers long walks through rhododendron chocked chigger thickets in search of rarely visited poison ivy enriched Henderson Gneiss. You can help him in his search for a cure by loaning him a fresh rack of cams and some cortisone cream. In 2012, Mike released Cedar Rock and Satellite Crags and is currently co-authoring a guidebook to rope climbs at Rumbling Bald.
