Ryan Nelson

I grew up here in the valley bouncing back and forth between Whitefish and Kalispell. I graduated from Flathead High School, then made my way down to the University of Montana in Missoula to complete my degree in Elementary Education. I began climbing in high school as a weekend warrior and soon I found myself adapting this as a lifestyle change. RockFish has been my home since it opened in 2016, and in 2017 I developed the Team Scalers Youth Team Program. Instructing and coaching has always been my main passion beyond simply enjoying my personal climbing and training. Feel free to say hi next time you’re in and maybe I’ll see you at the crag.
