I'm Connor and I've been climbing since I could walk. When I blew my A2 pulley (left ring finger), I used one of the early iterations of the SPOrt™ and followed the recovery protocol. The pulley healed fully and now I'm climbing harder than ever! I'm proud to represent the SPOrt™, as I've experienced its impact firsthand. Now I want to share it with fellow climbers who are struggling with finger injuries and get them back in action!
I'm based in Colorado Springs, as Amity (my wife) pursues a Masters in Sports Nutrition. Last year, we converted a Ford Transit into our home on wheels, "[dirt]BagEnd" which serves as our current home. I'm working part-time at CityROCK and part-time as a carpenter, and we're in weekend warrior mode at the moment (Rifle, South Platte, Shelf Road, Penitente Canyon, The Monastery, Estes Park, Vedauwoo).
