I'm an Engineer and a Rock Climber

“There are a lot of overlaps between engineering and rock climbing. The problem-solving process is present in both. It’s all about iteration and trying new things. My rock climbing has influenced my engineering in that it has taught me to take risks and commit to things. And sometimes for the engineering process, that’s what it takes. You have an idea, and you just have to go with it and not be afraid to fail.”
—Max Saccone ’17 Th’17
