Danny Santarsieri finds solace in the challenges rock climbing offers. He views each new conflict he faces on the wall as preparation for the trials he faces in life.

A fourth-year medical student focusing on psychiatry, he applies the passion and focus he’s honed at the gym to achieving his personal and professional goals. For Danny, climbing is his personal form of therapy and an inspiring metaphor for life.
