Nat began climbing in 2008 at Flagstaff Climbing. With the help and guidance of Flagstaff Climbing, he pursued his passion at the gym, began bouldering and sport climbing outside, and finally began trad climbing.

Now, Nat plays a large part in our youth climbing programs and is also a customer service representative, instructor and routesetter.
