Dave Nettle is a rock climbing legend responsible for a litany of first ascents across the globe, with a noted emphasis in the Sierra Nevada High Country. Nettle possesses an undying love of climbing and skiing, as long as it is done with good style, laughs and with great partners.

He is known as one of the world’s premier adventure storytelling athletes. We talk at length about the power of shared stories, the heritage of Alpenglow Sports (which Dave managed for nearly 20 years) and those connected to it, how Nettle has maintains drive and motivation, and how to live a fully realized life.
