Quentin Roberts

Born in England to a Canadian father and Austrian mother, Quentin’s path was destined to be worldly. As a young pup, Quentin started climbing in Wales with his father and soon found his way into the Alps with his school’s alpine climbing team in Germany. From there, Quentin moved to South Africa where he tugged on tufas and surfed world class breaks. A passion for skateboarding led Quentin to advocate and help develop a skatepark, contributing to his admission to Pearson College on Vancouver Island.

It was in Canada where his dedication to climbing was sparked. Quentin became a hunter for hard new alpine lines, like the east face of Chacrataju in Peru, bonding himself to the modern praxis of climbing. Quentin went on to university and received his degree in mechanical engineering. Publicly, Quentin is known for his solos, like Striving for the Moon on Mount Temple, which he feels are personal releases of energy. Privately, among friends and partners, he’s known for his tactfulness, strength and positive energy.

Presentation

Summit Views: A Life Committed

The absurd pursuit of alpinism affects profound change in the individual. Dedicating oneself to exploration allows for a shift in perspective and deeper insight into both the workings of our natural environment, and also ourselves as human beings. Quentin will take you with him on his journey through life and through the wildest mountain ranges on Earth.
