Patagonia Rock Climbing Ambassador Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll
Sean believes he didn’t choose to climb – climbing chose him. He considers his first expedition to Patagonia as a turning point in his life because he felt utterly connected with the forces of nature and the adventure of just being alive. Climbing teachesSean to live life to the fullest and that he can do whatever he wants if he puts his mind to it.
