Hot Pants (HP) first found First Descents through a Top 10 Hero’s article online which instantly snagged his attention thinking about having the opportunity to connect with an amazing community of individuals while going on adventures. This quickly led him to his first program in Ouray, Colorado to ice climb in 2018. He has been hooked ever since!! 

HP was born and raised in California and grew up in a military family which meant his worldly travel started at a young age, with his most favorite military base being in Guam. It’s safe to say he’s happiest near any ocean or beach where he can surf or snorkel. Best of luck trying to track HP down… one day he is flying off glaciers in France, the next he is shredding on his mountain bike or snowboard (depending on where he is!).
