Chris (yes it s his real name) Summit, was born to climb. A Northern California native he started climbing and bouldering on the rocks around his home in Santa Rosa where he grew up and still lives today. Since then his natural desire has evolved into a passionate obsession changing his life forever for the better. In his 20 years of climbing Chris has wrote several guidebooks including Bay Area Bouldering by Supertopo and worked at most of the North Bay climbing gyms setting routes, belaying and teaching indoors and out. He has done first ascents of sport climbs, traditional climbs and many boulder problems all over Northern California. His appetite for new, high quality, unique and challenging rocks to climb used to drive him to travel far and wide. Now he travels less because he has found that what he is looking for is usually close to his front door.
