Bob Gipple's Bio

I dabble with sport and top rope climbing, but thats just cross training for ice climbing. Starting to get into winter mountaineering and will be leading a 10 day snowshoeing trip to Bozeman, MT over winter break. I've been alpine skiing for quite a while, but last year I demoed some tele's and I think I'm hooked, which will probably play into my mountaineering as I develop both skills.

My summer activities are backpacking and racing triathlons.
