About Tyler Yarbrough
My name is Tyler Yarbrough, living in Louisville, Kentucky. I'm in a unique position as a Kentuckian in the fact that I'm a professional living in a big city, whose heart cries out to explore the woods and cliffs of the far Eastern part of our state. I'm a project manager by profession, and I spend most days sitting behind a desk. But as soon as I walk out the office, my focus shifts to my true passion; rock climbing. I spend my evenings training; climbing until my fingers are raw and bleeding, or pulling until my forearms are at the point of total exhaustion. For 6 months out of the year, nearly everything I do revolves around climbing at the Red River Gorge in Eastern Kentucky. The natural beauty of Kentucky is on display there like no other place in the state, and people come from all over the world to climb on the RRG's steep, overhanging sandstone walls. For me, it's paradise. Each Spring and Fall, I spend my days dreaming of my next adventure outside, and the next chance I'll get to push my mind and body a little bit further.
