Blake attends Olathe South High School while living in Olathe his whole life. He has always had an adventurous side to him that liked to do difficult hikes on family trips and climb rocks. So it was not surprising that climbing was right up his alley. After he watched the famous “Free Solo” documentary, he fell in love with the idea and got right into it. Blake has been climbing since January of 2019 and does not plan to stop any time soon.
