Dana Passman -

Chapter Co-Chair

I first appreciated outdoor climbing while going to school in Boone, NC, where the grades are sandbagged but the climbing culture was inspiring. I considered myself as a sport-climber in the beginning, but switched gears to bouldering after a year of climbing. After taking a cross-country climbing road trip after college, I settled in Chattanooga where I met an incredible group of lady crushers to spend my free time with.

I am currently a weekend-warrior, but a dirtbag traveler at heart. I appreciate the outdoors for it's intrinsic value as well as the opportunities it provides to push our physical and mental boundaries. I am a strong advocate for the conservation of our public lands, and dedicate time to help LCO's trail days when they are available.
