In this edition of Around The Crag, we wanted to highlight one of our route setters, Dion Pankratz. Get to know him more by reading below!
1. Where are you from?
Born in Virginia but raised in your backyard.
2. How long have you been climbing?
I started climbing in 2000. A few years here and there were missed do to injury, travel, and just plan ole’ rebellion. I have been steady on the horse now for the last 3 years.
3. What do you love most about rock climbing?
The feeling you get when sending a project that you know is past your level. It’s like a mystical creature that only shows itself once in a blue moon, but when you spot it, it’s mind blowing!
