Jacob is an adventure climber, mathematics professor and Bronwyn Hodgins’ husband. Jacob’s climbing accomplishments are wide-ranging, including a new route on Mount Asgard, 14b sport climbs, ground up slab first ascents in Squamish and multiple free ascents of El Capitan - but the climbs that keep Jacob awake at night are big wall first ascents on the worlds biggest, most remote walls.
