The pursuit of improvement has been Lucas’ focus for his entire life. He was extremely active growing up, and was involved in different sports and activities, but climbing was the one that stuck.

Lucas has always enjoyed a little healthy competition. In 2009, he discovered there were competitions for the sport he loved most – climbing – and was super motivated to participate. He joined a climbing team, started training, and zeroed in on his goal to see how far he could go.

So far, Lucas has claimed a few national titles and has had the privilege of representing Canada on the international stage. He makes times to coach, route-set and get outside to climb on rock whenever he can.

“Seeing the success in my failure helps me enjoy the process and stay motivated.”
