Meet the Owner
Founder, dreamer, and thrill seeker. Frederic has been a life long climber and outdoor educator. He now brings his passion for climbing and teaching to Challenge Rocks.
Frederic was introduced to rock climbing through cliff diving. He discovered that by being a skilled rock climber, he could reach greater heights to then dive into the water below. During that discovery process he found that climbing would forever be a part of his life.
For the past 14 years, Frederic has been teaching rock climbing to local youth and adults. As an accomplished climber himself, he can effectively guide everyone from complete beginners to seasoned climbers to their next level of climbing. Climbing teams under Frederic's instruction have been involved in the National Championship as well as competing at an international level.
For Frederic, Challenge Rocks isn't a job. It's what he loves. "Love what you do. Do what you love."
