Alexander Smith - Front Desk & Belayer

Alex's climbing was kickstarted through a merit badge program at a Boy Scout camp. Now with 3 years of experience under his belt, Alex's full-time hobby is climbing! Alex enjoys trad and ice climbing and aspires to someday tackle climbing the mountains in Alaska and the French Alps. He is Wilderness First Aid and CPR Certified and is hoping to get his AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor certification this year. Alex is currently a student at Umass Lowell and is also an occasional belayer for the Kid's' Climb program offered at the BRG.

Favorite Climbs: "My favorite climbs have been 'Black Lung' and the classic route 'Thin Air' both on Cathedral Ledge in North Conway."
