Hi and welcome to the homepage of Mike Doyle. I'm a Canadian Software Developer, Rock Climber and Climbing Coach currently living in Las Vegas,NV. I'm just trying to get outside climbing when I can and enjoy
the multitude of year-round climbing areas that Las Vegas has to offer. My latest travel stories can be found under the Trip Journals while my

of the site can be found by navigating using the links at the top of the page.

about here is that there are quite a few different beaches. It's like a huge climbing area with lots of variety. The last few days were amazing and I can't wait to come back.
