What he's known for:
I have Sport climbed Broken Blade (5.13d) and bouldered Another Eternity (v12) I always strive to push my own limits.
My name is Tanner Mack and I'm 16 years old. I have lived atop Mt. Lemmon, a 9000 foot sky island in the Sonoran Desert. Growing up in the forest, climbing naturally found a way into my life. When I was 7, a family friend tied me to rope and started what is now my climbing career. My climbing has blossomed into something far greater then I thought it would ever be. I train 6-7 days a week and compete in the youth climbing circuit. My dream is to never stop climbing and to love the sport.
Words he lives by:
"You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them."
What inspires him:
My biggest inspiration is Dean Potter. He pushed not only the sport of climbing but the attitude of doing whatever you want, however you want.
