About the Author, Travis Peckham

A native of the Green Mountain State, Travis Peckham has been exploring northeast climbing for over 25 years. Climbing trips west and abroad have brought him to 17 states, 10 countries on 4 continents, but one of his favorite places to climb has always been right here at home.

He has been on the board of CRAG-VT since its inception, serving as president from 2005 to 2010. During this period, CRAG-VT acquired Upper West and the Carcass Crag, and coordinated with the Vermont Land Trust to conserve the 82 Crag. He has a degree in computer science from Boston University which he puts to use at his day job, working for a medical software company. When he’s not climbing, he enjoys trail running, mountain biking and snowboarding.
