Climbing

Riley McMorran

Instructor

What is your favorite part about working at Climb Iowa?  

Hard to choose.  The people are pretty great.

What’s your favorite quote? 

“Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!”       -Dennis (Monty Python)

If you could live anywhere you want, where would it be?

Somewhere sunny with mountains, maybe an ocean, too. That’s all I really care about.

What started you into climbing? 

My slacklining friends kept bugging me to try it, and eventually I caved. The rest is history.

Do you have any pets? 

Two cats, Dexter & Ally May. Dexter is my spirit animal.

What is your favorite kind of pizza?

Pineapple, spinach, red pepper, & onion is the perfect pizza and I will fight you on that.

What other activities do you enjoy? 

My life is almost entirely climbing, slacklining, running, & video games.

What is the coolest thing you have done? 

Hiking in Kumano Kodo in Japan. Nothing even comes close.
