Nominated by the Edgeworks staff because he’s great and he helped us out a TON with the tape art for the black light competition! Plus, his work on the “TODAY” board at the front entry of they gym is da bomb. Thanks, Archie!

How did you start climbing? 

Archie:  The first time I climbed was at church camp.  As soon as I could afford a pair of shoes and a membership I joined Edgeworks and decided to make it my sport!

Why do you climb at Edgeworks? 

Archie:  The community is really cool and route setters are awesome and set a good variety of routes!

Where is your favorite place to climb outside? 

Archie: Leavenworth. For SURE. Boulder or bust.

What do you do when you’re not climbing? 

Archie: I work, sleep, and cook food. I also cuddle with my dog, Brownie.  

What are some interesting facts that you’d like to share with the Edgeworks community?
