Gabe found more in climbing than just joy. The focus and exposure in climbing helps to put other issues you are struggling with into the right perspective.
From: Baltimore, Maryland

Favourite gear: 8BPLUS Crushed Chalk
Success Stories: Climbing has helped me get through some of my biggest struggles. Helping people find climbing as both a passion and a tool for growth has been very rewarding. I starting a climbing team at my high school back in 2012 and by my high school graduation I had watched the team grow to become the biggest sports team at my high school.
If not climbing: I am outside exploring the mountains surrounding SLC with some homies, planning for a trip, or saving up for grad school.
Plans for the future: To keep training and pushing my own limits in climbing while working towards becoming a mental health therapist.
