Born and raised in the heart of the dirty south, Atlanta, Georgia, Jonathan has been a southern climber since 2005. He spends his weekends developing and climbing on sweet, sweet southern stone and his vacations traveling abroad in pursuit of all the world's best climbs. He is currently on a mission to tick routes off of his life list. He recently visited Verdon, France where he climbed the iconic Tom et Je Ris and has now shifted his focus to a free ascent of the Salathe Wall in Yosemite, CA. Rounding out his list of dream routes are Groove Train on the Taipan Wall in Australia and Mind Control in Oliana, Spain.
Jonathan currently works as Head Routesetter for two Climb Nashville climbing gyms in Nashville, TN, currently holds his USAC Level 4 routesetting certification, and sets for frequent local, regional, and national championships across the country.
