Eli Staggs

Hello! My name is Eli and I am very excited to be working at RRT. I couldn’t be happier to surround my self in an environment that I feel so passionate about. It is my hope I can share my love of the outdoors with you and answers any questions you may have.

I was raised in a family where camping was common and being outside was valued. But I never had an extended backpacking trip until high school. A 50 mile trip through Shenandoah National Park in early spring inspired me to thru hike one day. One week after graduating high school I found my self in Maine beginning my thru hike.

Over the past few years I have also become an avid rock climber. My dad introduced me to the sport when I was 15 and I was hooked. Currently if I’m not studying for classes or sleeping you will find me climbing, thinking about climbing, or reading about climbing. Most of my time spent is spent bouldering or sport climbing, however I am always down for a multi pitch tradventure.

Please feel free to ask me any questions and I would love to hear any of your stories!
