Nathan grew up right around the corner from Shaker Rocks on Manchester Rd, and spent a lot of time at the old Van Aken as a youngin’, frequenting Sand’s and the Italian Café (so he’s ecstatic about the Belgian Waffles at Nature’s Oasis). His passion for climbing started in college, where he picked up bouldering, and eventually became a more well-rounded climber out in Denver, CO, where he managed and roasted for a coffee shop called Wash Perk. He has a firm belief that because we’re all primates, climbing can truly be for everyone. Don’t be afraid to strike up conversation with this trash panda, even if he’s digging through the garbage; that’s just his method of waste and finance management.
Shaker Rocks is hosting the Shaker Heights Development Corporation’s Shake it Up Gala this year. We will be closed Saturday, August 24th starting at 3PM for the event.
