This is me. I don't usually smile this much though...

About Me[edit]

My name is Nicolas Sabo but I always go by Nic.
I enjoy acquiring new skills and knowledge. I do not enjoy attempting to describe myself. My hobbies include hackysack, juggling, biking (mountain and road), and climbing rocks.
This summer (2012), I spent my time at Smith Rock State Park in Central Oregon (just north of Bend) working as a rock climbing guide with Smith Rock Climbing Guides. In other words, I got paid to hang out with cool people, go climbing, and generally goof around.
During my time at Smith, a good friend Jon Rhoderick and I took it upon ourselves to update a set of anchors on a 800ft multi-pitch climb called Astro Monkey. This process involved climbing the route with the necessary equipment (hammer, hand drill, crowbar, etc.), pulling out the old rusty bolts, expanding the existing holes with a hand drill and placing the new hardware. It was our first time doing this and it was a fun (read:EXHAUSTING) endeavor. Now the route is significantly safer.
