Scott joined the Defying Gravity team in 2015 as our youth team competition consultant. His first outside climbing trip to Bishop, CA 15 years ago instilled a fierce passion for climbing which prompted him to seek out a job in the industry as a routesetter. Scott has set for several gyms from the university level up to the largest climbing gym company in the world. While not working at the Freestone climbing gym in Missoula, he can be found dabbling in blacksmithing, running amok with his Australian Shepard, or cooking extravagant dinners for his loving wife Sara. In his spare time he attempts to recreate a working 1/32 scale model Hadron Collider built out of toothpicks in his backyard.
