Brian Payst - Northern Piedmont Rep

Area Reps


I was born in Raleigh and started climbing "back in the day" years ago. I learned to lead at Moore's and have that NC ethic steeped in me. I have climbed lots of different places throughout the U.S., Canada, Malaysia and elsewhere, but still think we have some of the best cliffs on the planet. I've been back and forth over the past few years between exclusively bouldering and roped climbing. Right now I'm enjoying whatever I can get to do. I am the father of 2 children and work in IT when not in servitude to the CCC. I am really pleased to be able to make a small contribution with my time and efforts to help the CCC preserve and protect our climbing resources for now and for my kids.
