Opening a climbing gym gave this man a new sense of freedom

“Freedom is being able to do the things you want to do. It’s partly having the money to do it, it’s partly having the time to do it, and it’s partly being willing to let go of the things that are holding you back.”

After 25 years in software development, John Gross felt he wasn’t being challenged enough. A trip with his kids inspired him to start rock climbing, and eventually open True North Climbing.

Now, he owns a successful business where he gets to play every day.
