Dan RapkinCWI Certified Rec Instructor

    At ABC, I am a Rec Coach!  My style of coaching is encouraging and fun!

    I grew up in New Jersey, but moved to the Adirondacks for college, which is where I developed a love for climbing.

    I live in Boulder because there’s no place else like it!

    I started climbing when I was 17 years old. 

    I keep climbing because there’s no other choice!

    What makes me interesting is … You’ll have to ask my friends and coworkers!

    If I were an animal, I would be a monkey, obviously.

    The foods I love are gluten free cinnamon buns, french fries, roasted chicken and potatoes, shakshuka, matzo ball soup, gummy bears…the list could go on and on!

    If I were a color, I would be ultramarine blue

    When not climbing, I am thinking about climbing, or sweets, probably.

    What I love about ABC is the incredibly supportive staff, fun working environment, and ability to grow as a coach!
