Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Paul’s drive for climbing comes from the unknown of each new route and the comradery of the friends that join him. Spirited and gregarious, Paul has had many first ascents, including The Canadian Route on Fitzroy, Beluga Spire's Harpoon and the Southwest Buttress on the NW Summit of Mt. Waddington. Yet, Paul is just as happy to peel off some lichen from a granite face to reveal a new climb in his own backyard of Squamish. A guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, a high ropes rigger and a multi-talented mountain sports polymath, Paul would always rather have no information and go through the rousing journey of discovery.
