A member of the "official North Face Climbing Team'' to the incredible record of the most ascents (103) of El Capitan including 5 first ascents.. He is affectionally known as the "King of El Capitan".. Expeditions have ranged from climbing in Alaska's Kichatna Spires, India's ''Thalay Sagar'' to multiple Patagonian trips which include ascents of Cerro Torre and Cerro Stanhardt with first ascents of Torre Egger, El Mocho, and Poincenot.. Climbing with Steve was a great pleasure.. His unassuming character and easy approach to climbing and instructing is to be applauded.. By listening to his advice and watching his demonstration of certain techniques, I became a better climber quicker than I thought possible..

Phoenix E9 6c, Sectioned E8 6c, Scuttle Buttin' E7 6c, Minnie Monster E7 6c,.. generated status and made him one of America's most celebrated climbers..
