Artist, writer, route developer, guidebook author, and self-described Norse God, Jason’s climbing style is not exactly gentle. But if you need someone to check for loose holds, he just might be your guy. He’s a lousy boulderer, but a great spotter. He has limited patience for a redpoint project, but endless passion for an adventure. His fingers are too big for the little holds and thin cracks, but give him a pair of ice axes and watch gravity cease to exist. Jason’s wife Lisa is often nearby and has a fondness for desert cracks. You may have in fact seen or met this motley duo roaming the Southwest or at some of the climbing festivals where they often teach clinics and compete.
