Elliott grew up in the Portland area and began his climbing career in 2016. Since then, climbing has become one of his major passions and has led to many new friendships and experiences! Elliott is currently studying Environmental Science at UNE and is hoping to combine his passion for climbing and conservation work in the future. When not climbing or in the gym, Elliott can be found studying, listening to the Grateful Dead, or staring longingly out a window waiting for good climbing temps (usually all at once.)
Some of his favorite local spots to climb are North Conway and Shagg Crag! If you see Elliott around the gym, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation! (He’s the really tall, strong guy)
Elliott’s advice to the new climber? Don’t get discouraged or frustrated by failure, it’s all a part of the process!
