BACK IN THE SPRING the N3C staff members nominated the North Country Climbing Center’s owner Rusty Talbot for the recognition of being the 2017 New Hampshire Young Professional of the Year. In July we all found out he was a finalist, and today we find out he WON!!

Rusty is not only the owner of the rock gym, but also volunteers countless hours to the local Fire Department, the Chamber of Commerce, the Pemi Valley Search & Rescue team, and to bringing the love and fitness of indoor and outdoor climbing to our North Country youths.

Rusty and Jess, thank you SO MUCH for the things you do for our community, for bringing such a rad group of climbers together, for the volunteerism and community outreach you do yourselves and inspire in all of us, and for being our friends. From all of the North Country Climbing Center staff, THANK YOU and WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!
