About Nathan Williamson
Nathan began climbing as much as he could at a young age. “I didn’t really have anyone in my life who was into climbing at first,” he recalls. “I just knew I loved it and thought it was something I could challenge myself in.” Nathan quickly caught on to the amazing skill of projecting. Learning how to remain calm on a project became his catalyst in climbing, especially when it came to soloing. “It has never been about fear to me,” he says, “just mastering a heightened sense of awareness.” Nathan has soloed routes up to 5.12b, including many 5.11 onsights.
Recently, Nathan has been sport climbing far up in the Uintas. He likes to focus on first ascents near his personal limit, but he’s always psyched to repeat routes, too.
