Daniel Dolan grew up in Chicago. A passionate climber, Danny spent much of his collegiate years working for his school's outdoor program as a guide and rushing off to Devils Lake and the Red River Gorge to climb whenever possible. Despite the vertical distractions, He received a degree in mechanical engineering and quickly put it to use at a firm in Aurora, IL. The call of the mountains eventually became too powerful to ignore, and Danny quit his job to pursue climbing at world-class destinations around the country. After a year and a half of living out of a small teardrop trailer, Danny settled in Reno, NV, where he can both work and play. Danny's experience as an engineer and as a dedicated climber has made him meticulously focused and diligent. Since moving to Reno, he has taught himself to draw, paint, and continues to learn and improve as a climber.
