Climb

Jordan’s love and appreciation for climbing spawns from the true freedom he has found through the sport. As a kid, Jordan didn’t have physical access to climbs, but that didn’t stop him from stemming every doorway and scaling every tree he could find, imagining them as routes. Once he actually touched real rock, he took to climbing like a fish to water and has never taken a single day on rock for granted.  Jordan is revered by his elders for his work ethic and respect for climbing. His strength lies in his clean classic style, courteous temperament and meticulous packing. If you ever get a chance to climb with Jordan, know that he will happily wait for you if you are slow, but you better have your bag packed the night before.
