Photographer: William Pinckard, member since October 2018.  “I got into climbing in highschool. I was always a weird nerdy kid but then one day I was bitten by a radioactive spider and it pretty much changed my life. At first I still felt like a loner, but after finding Summit, a place where it seems nearly everyone has been through a similar experience, I finally felt like I was a part of something rather than the odd one out. The rest is history, I've been climbing and web slinging ever since.” - William P.

Photographer: Kevin Barnett, member since May 2016.  “I climb out of the Carrollton location and am excited about the new location that is opening in Plano! I got into climbing in Atlanta, Georgia at a place called Stone Summit as a means of destressing from my summer clerkships. Summit Carrollton continues to be a wonderful way to keep a semblance of work-life balance and meet awesome people!” - Kevin B.

Photographer: Fouad Bourji, member since January 2018.  “I've been a member for a little over a year, and got into climbing at summit when my friend invited out, after I had just gotten back from a trip. I had been in a post vacation depression phase, and he convinced me to come and climb; said it would make me feel better. And it sure ended up doing just what he said.” - Fouad B.
