Paul Robinson

Climbing

Paul Robinson lives his life as a professional boulderer. Fortunate enough to be able to travel the world on a near constant basis in search of new, hard, and amazing boulders (often yet to be climbed), Paul is happy every single day he gets to be on the rock or even in the gym pulling down. His favorite of course though are the days that he finds himself in far off lands exploring for new rocks to climb. I enjoy the intricacies and subtleties it takes to figure out specific climbs. I wake up every single morning psyched to get out and go do what i love, climbing.

Earliest Climbing Memory : "I can remember my first time ever climbing! I had a blast. I went to my friends birthday party when i was 11 years old and from that moment on no one could step between me and a climbing wall. It was all I wanted to do every single day and it still is that way to this very day, 13 years later.

What's in the musical mix? "Well despite the fact that hip hop died in 2010, I will continue to trudge forth in hopes of its resurrection in the years to come! The new JayZ Kanye album is pretty decent! Could be a start....

What's Paul been reading: Currently -Eager Street - this true story about a man who grew up in the ghetto of east Baltimore, was a drug dealer and hit man, and now lives his life in prison where he serves a life sentence.
A Favorite: the pearl by John Steinbeck
