The day when I first saw “Masters of Stone” , the oldest climbing video ever made, at the age of 15, changed my life. I had no doubt I had to go and be part of that world. I left Poland with $200 to my soul (and no inkling that it might have been a bad idea), heading for California's granite. Since then I have been fortunate to spend more time climbing than working and sleep outside more than inside. Rock climbing has taken me places, gotten me jobs, introduced me to my best friends. More than anything it's been a constant reminder of how alive and happy I am. I am eternally grateful for having found rock climbing in my life.
