He spends most of his time traveling from crag to crag in the 2002 Ford Econoline Minivan he calls home. Climbing, for Alex, began when he was 11 years old and he hasn’t been able to stop since. Keep an eye out, you never know when he might show up at your local climbing spot.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in a van? Where do you store things? How do you stay powered? What do you do when you need a bathroom?
