Clint grew up in Enumclaw, Washington and learned to climb in the Cascades with his mom and dad. In spite of being curious about Idaho climbing based on the climb lists in the back of Fred Beckey’s “Challenge of the North Cascades”, he only managed one climbing trip to the Elephants Perch in 1991 after cutting a cloudy Bugaboos trip short. But oh what a trip it was! Clint is a longtime guidebook nut, having produced a 1993 guidebook to Index Town Wall. He is currently working on an updated edition of Yosemite Free Climbs. Clint has provided this site with his two web pages cataloging Sawtooth Rock Climbs and Elephant Perch Rock Climbs.
