Hey, my name is Drew. I’m a climber based out of Nashville. I’m a full time social worker and climber.
I first saw Free Solo and wondered if I could climb in a gym. I looked up if people of my size could climb and I didn’t find any results. So I went to a gym and tried it out. I fell in love and have been at it for 3 years now.
It’s completely changed my life! It showed me how important getting outside is. It has led me to travel more and explore. It has grown my community so much as well!
I love to read! I also like to fish.
You are worthy no matter what body type you have.
I’m hoping to start more clinics or events based around the idea that climbing is for everyBODY. I hope to have events soon!
