For Jordan Campbell, the idea of international climbing is only a part of a greater story of cross-cultural stewardship and global awareness. In the past 20 years, Jordan has emerged as a dedicated journalist and ambassador of mountain culture – unearthing important stories born from the tribe of climbers and adventurers. Through landmark expeditions, scrambles along exposed, knife-edge ridges leading to lofty summits world-wide, Jordan has demonstrated a profound commitment to understand distant cultures and the natural world. Should you find him fighting his way up an Indian Creek splitter, skiing under bluebird skies, gripped above his last ice screw, or swirling his head in thin air, Jordan is probably already lost in a separate reality - ascending a metaphysical mountain in his wildest dreams.
