Jimmy was born in Maryville Tennessee (USA) on the 7th of November, 1987. He found climbing at age 17 through a close friend and began competing locally in his high school. When he was 19 he moved to the nearby climbing mecca of Chattanooga and started repeating the hardest lines and establishing a few of his own. In 2013 he made a memorable trip to Rocklands, South Africa where he flashed multiple 8B boulders. From here on he became known as “the greatest flash climber” in the sport of bouldering. These days developing is the main passion behind Jimmy and his climbing. He travels the world as much as possible in search for the next best thing. Currently he is living in California exploring the endless amounts of potential hidden in the Sierra Mountains.
