Eric at Work

ERIC SCHWEITZER is 38 years old and lives in Bend, Oregon where he divides his time between part time home remodeling, shoe resoling, skiing, kayaking, climbing and preparing for his next climbing road trip. An unusually wet winter one year in Portrero Chico, Mexico put a damper on the climbing, but freed up some time for him to pursue “non-climbing” activities such as scoping out new routes, practicing yoga, and aprenticing himself under the tutelage of Edgardo, the local resoler.

A special thanks to zen master resoler Brian McCray of Fly'n Brian's Resole for adding to the foundation of resole knowledge given by Edgardo Baca.
