Tony Reynaldo’s guiding principle in life is to, “Give back more then you take.” His life bridges an almost 20 year exposure to climbing all across the country and working in the outdoor industry. The climbing industry has been tremendously supportive of his philanthropic efforts, everything from his “Will Climb For Food” series to his “Do Work Tour” rebolting efforts. Tony has recently made a significant contribution to his local climbing community by building “Kinetic” a bouldering gym that fills a deep need for a good training facility in Columbus, Ohio. His sponsors see him as an asset and ambassador for their companies, not because he sends 5.14, but because he uses his guiding principle in life to give back to climbing and inspiring others.
Well the weather broke finally and I finally got to get out for a week and do some climbing after being cooped up inside working on my course prep and research. Having a day job rocks but it sometimes cramps the climbing style. But hey I have some sweet office perks, they gave me these things called Post-It notes have you heard of them?
