Niles Barnes passion for climbing runs deep, from ice to trad to sport to bouldering — he loves to do it all and suggests that specialization is for insects. He started climbing in North Carolina as a teenager, but didn’t get fully consumed until he moved to Lexington, KY and was within close striking distance of the Red River Gorge. Since moving to KY six years ago, he’s been fortunate to climb in some beautful areas in the US and Canada, in France, Switzerland and a bit in Argentina.

When not climbing, he’s trying to help colleges and universities achieve their sustainability goals through his work with AASHE (www.aashe.org).
