Mikhail Martin is the co-founder of Brothers of Climbing, an organization dedicated to bringing diversity, inclusion, and more representation to the rock climbing community. He loves climbing and wants to share that with the world. His mission is to show and teach people of color how to rock climb and show them that that they can get out there and do it too.
When Mikhail was a child, he recalls that being outside meant freedom. It meant spending afternoons riding bikes and exploring the outdoors but within the limitations of his own neighborhood. When he started rock climbing, he didn’t understand then how the experience would change his life.
