Adam Payne is not your classic dirtbag climber.
A New Jersey native, he spent a majority of his life as a cyclist, riding 100 mile stretches at time. He was also a climber until he was diagnosed with ataxia, a rare degenerative disorder that affects movement and speech, in 1997.
Adam Payne rules the wall: with yet another year of competing in adaptive climbing, his grit and wit are just as sharp as his skill.
