• Brad climbs some challenging rocks.

Brad joined the Evolv team in 2008 right around the time that he moved to Yosemite Valley to work and climb. He’s been climbing for 19 years but for the last seven years the sport of rock climbing has become the main focus of his life. Brad enjoys trad climbing the most but also sport climbing and sometimes bouldering.

His greatest climbing achievements have been in places like Yosemite, Squamish, The Black Canyon, Zion and Moab. He’s drawn to rock climbing because it requires an immense amount of physical and mental strength. His best days have been big linkups on long routes where he feels sore, tired and scared by the end. A type 2 fun that’s uncomfortable in the moment but something to look back on and be proud of. The main goals of his climbing life are in Yosemite Valley primarily on the granite face of El Capitan. Climbing has given him purpose and dedication in life and he hope to be doing it till he’s old and grey.
