Boulder Design Team

Adam Chase

Adam grew up in the close-knit community of Canaan Valley, WV. At the age of seventeen, he caught the climbing bug, scaling nearby Seneca Rocks and bouldering his way through the Dolly Sods Wilderness. When he enrolled at West Virginia University (majoring in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism), Adam continued climbing at Coopers Rock State Forest and at the university's indoor wall.

In 2008, Adam moved to Boulder, CO and climbed extensively in the Front Range of the Rockies. More recently, he returned to West Virginia and worked as a climbing guide at the Nelson Rocks Via Ferrata. He currently resides in Davis, WV.

“The design process fascinates me, and I am very excited to be a part of the one for the Tucker Country Boulder Park. I’ve been climbing for almost three years now, and don’t see myself stopping in the near future. It has become a top passion of mine; the mental and physical energy that is required of the activity enthralls me. It is exciting to know that with my help, new and old climbers
