It’s nothing short of a miracle that climbing came into my life and saved me from mediocrity. My compulsion has taken me to dozens of countries on five continents, and I’m not done yet. Paul’s drive for climbing comes from the unknown of each new route and the camaraderie of the friends that join him. Spirited and gregarious, Paul has had many first ascents, including The Canadian Route on Fitz Roy, Beluga Spire’s Harpoon and the Southwest Buttress on the NW Summit of Mt. Waddington. The last few years, paragliding has become a fun combo activity for me. It’s a great way to pass a rest day or the quick way down off a big route. By far the funnest part about climbing and flying is all the great humans I meet along the way.
