Just to bump this thread.

Roy introduced me to Erik in the late 70’s on a trip to Lee Vining to ice climb. Erik took many a fledgling southern California climber such as myself under his wing and had more influence than he knows. Trained us in everything from how to use a beer bong too the art of setting good protection. We used to kid him that Roy once referred to him as the, “Best face climber in North America” or something like that.
Got to share a rope with Erik on climbs such as Keeler Needle and Cynical Pinnacle.
Cheers to Erik

Erik is one of the most accomplished all arounders in climbing today. 8,000 Meter peak ~ check; 45+ El Cap routes ~ check; free climbs to 5.13 ~ check. Big time Ice routes ! check. The guy can do it all. Here's a few shots of E on various climbs:

Following the Groovy Arch - Sea Of Dreams

In the chimneys & wide fun of Son Of Heart, 2008

E leading the Heartbreak Hotel pitch on Son Of Heart What is that in his hands? Could this be on the 20th of April?

Captains Quarters ledge ~ Jolly Roger, 2007

E cleaning the start of Native Son , 2005 His semi-girlfriend Cybelle is jugging & taking photos.

After some Gatoritas at the top on Native Son. Man was I wasted!

High on Sea Of Dreams~ I think this is the Ace In Space pitch?


E lives the life of a true iconoclast, minimalist posessions, just enough work to pay the bills, maximum time to go climbing.

Oh yeah- he is fond of the sacagewea. Hustlers guard your sack, the Chicken Hawk is back!
