Nick Smith (NS)

I love getting lost in trying to create or solve a certain sequence or problem. Setting is just an extension of climbing for me. It doesn’t matter what else is going on in the world, it all dissipates when I climb onto the wall or rock (if i’m lucky). I love watching people climb routes and noticing the different ways they use their movement and specific strengths to complete a sequence. I could talk to setters and climbers about routes and solving sequences all day! So if you see me around, come and talk to me about what you like and most importantly what you dislike.
