Hi I'm Dakota- a first ascentionist, 911 EMT, and creative. My love for climbing has taken me across four continents establishing over five vertical miles worth of new climbing routes. Along the way I have self published two books with my closest friends.
As a living breathing namesake, I represent the few unlikely wall climbers to come from the 3rd flattest state in the union. North Dakota born and road worn, I’ve cut my teeth on every style of climbing the planet has to offer. Currently residing in Colorado, I spend many of my days (and nights) working in an ambulance serving the burbs of Denver. Between calls or while traveling the world I scribble away in my journal and plan for the next big first ascent or creative project.
