I first met Ronnie seven years ago on the phone. We were connected via our mutual sponsorship with Evolve climbing shoes. At the time I was exploring ways to share the power of climbing with others outside of the climbing community. Ronnie and I spoke for an hour and at the end of that time we planted the seed to launch our first adaptive climbing camp in Joshua Tree National Park.
Ronnie and I worked together to offer a series of climbing camps for adaptive athletes over the next couple of years and wrapped up the series with an attempt to climb the Grand Teton with six fellow adaptive athletes, that trip did not end with a summit, but the learning was profound and inspiring for all involved.
Ronnie is a true rockstar - check out the video, follow him via the social feeds, give him a shout out - he crushes it!
