Hi! My name is Calvin Landrus, I was born in 1961 and have been climbing since 1978. I have been married to my wife, Jan, since 1985 and we have had three children: Jessica, Hanna, and Jaxson.
I started climbing by attending a Spokane Mountaineers Climbing School and have been an active climber ever since. When I started, if you could climb 5.10, you were badass. With that view of hardness, it wasn’t until I was 44 that I climbed my first 5.12 (the classic Heinous Cling at Smith Rock). Since then I have sent, about 30 pitches at the 5.12 level with my current hardest redpointb being 5.12b. I have done a few big walls including the Nose on El Captain and freeing Rainbow Wall, Red Rocks (Grade V, 5.12a).
As climber who is a Christ follower, the most important thing to me in climbing is that I glorify God as I climb and be a witness for Him. Therefore, I am awesomely blessed by being able to help other climbers do that as well by being the National Director of Solid Rock Climbers for Christ.
