Who me? My name is Renan Ozturk. I discovered my passion for climbing while attending Colorado College dreaming about epic adventures in remote mountain ranges. After graduating in the sciences I followed my calling to Indian Creek, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Squamish, the Bugaboos, and the Himalaya. The compelling landscapes of such iconic locations provides the driving force of motivation for me to expand physically through climbing and conceptually through art.
So in climbing, so in art, so in life. In all three the full spectrum of emotions come into play. At times there will be uncertainty, insecurity and fear. At other times there will be inspiration and things will flow effortlessly. Ultimately it is amazing that we are here at all. The more time we spend expressing ourselves through actions and thoughts the more richly we have lived. Climbing and art are two of the greatest vehicles I have found to carry me this direction.
