Fun Fact:

Dave McAllister is a freelance writer who lives out of a Ford Escape and Frankenstein trailer, lovingly called the Gravy Train. He’s been sucking, off and on, at climbing for over 15 years, from crags in the US to untouched boulder fields across Asia. He’s sucked at climbing across a wide diaspora of different languages and cultures. His work has appeared in Ascent, Rock and Ice, Deadpoint Magazine, Gripped, Adventure Journal and several other publications.

  Dave just scuttled his well-paying job, gave up his co-hosting responsibilities with the nation’s only climbing radio show, ClimbTalk, and sold a good portion of what he owns (but not the climbing gear) to travel across the country, making a go at climbing with a bit more fluency and writing full time.
