Hi, I'm Patrick!

I'm passionate about the outdoors and helping others get outside on their own adventures. I started without a single clue about anything outside of the four walls of my home.


Now, hiking, climbing and canyoning are my main pursuits. I even took a mini retirement just so I could do them as much as possible! I love adventure that much!


So no matter your background, skill level or part of the world you hail from, we can all do it! You'll find just what you need here! So come say YES to adventure with me!
