Taylor began climbing in 2006 and started route setting in 2010. He began setting at at his university’s rock wall but truly fell in love with setting once he started setting at commercial gyms. Since then, he has set at gyms throughout Pennsylvania, Texas, and New Mexico. Taylor also works as a registered nurse in various procedural areas.

“One of the best things about route setting at Tufas is the setting team. I have been setting for years with countless coworkers, but here, not only can I count on the team to make great product, they continually shock and inspire me with fascinating ideas and concepts. I have never worked on a team that continuously pushes each other to this degree to try to make the best outcomes and climbs for the climbers; it’s truly inspiring. Also, we have the best hold selection I’ve ever seen, that helps too.”
