Colton is a friendly, knowledgeable SIUE student and CREC rock wall attendant. He has been involved with the SIUE rock wall since 2010. His first experience climbing outdoors was on an SIUE Outdoor Recreation climbing trip to Jackson Falls. Ever since then, he has been an avid enthusiast for the sport of rock climbing through his work at the rock wall and his involvement with the SIUE student climbing club, Climber’s Anonymous. Colton has been a consistent route setter at the rock wall, and has always been willing to help out with special events such as the Glow Climb, Intramural Boulder Competition, and Family Weekend.
Colton goes above and beyond the requirements of his job. Patrons at the rock wall, whether they are first time climbers or seasoned veterans, are always welcomed and encouraged by Colton. His enthusiasm is contagious. He is looking forward to getting outdoors for more outdoor adventures in Colorado upon graduation.
