Hey, my name is Michael. I'm 46 years old and I'm a career massage therapist. I like hard slabs and cracks.
I was mentored by some crusty trad climbers.
Climbing has impacted my life in so many ways. It provides me with emotional balance and gives me a positive outlet for stress management. It helps me build confidence and self belief. Climbing helps me to be.
For me, one of the most fulfilling aspects of climbing is establishing new routes. Outside of climbing, I enjoy spending time with my family.
Love yourself and treat others like you want to be treated.
