Will is an ACC member and climbing guru living in Canmore, AB. Will grew up in a family that hiked, climbed and went into the mountains whenever they could. Some of his earliest memories are of long backpacking trips, wind-blown summits and surviving winter ski trips.
The first sport he really got into on his own was caving. When he was 14 he started kayaking. At 16 he bought his first climbing rope, and did his first new rock route. At 25 he first flew a paraglider. At 41 his daughter came into the world. She’s already doing all the stuff he did as a kid, and she’s an athlete too.
