Will grew up in downstate NY and was first exposed to climbing at age 13 through a three day climbing course here at Rock and River. While attending Plymouth State College Will got hooked on the sport and decided to make it his lifetime passion. He moved to the region in 2005 after seeing an article in Climbing Magazine about the unfolding climbing scene here in the Adirondacks and he hasn’t left since. Will has chased rock, ice and snow throughout the country as well as in Peru, Bolivia, the United Kingdom and France. Besides working at Rock and River, Will works as an adjunct for the Plattsburgh State Expeditionary Studies program as well as for the North Country Community College Wilderness Rec. Program. Will is married and the proud papa to two young daughters.
