Jim Bowers loves rocks. He loves climbing up them, he loves traversing them, he even loves making them. Jim’s become something of a local legend when it comes to climbing, having established hundreds of bouldering and sport routes throughout Pennsylvania. He’s earned a reputation for fearlessness because of his willingness to scale “high ball” routes without a rope. In this episode of I’m Your Neighbor, Jim shares reflects on his 50+ years of climbing and explains how that passion led him to launch two successful businesses: Petrogrips and Synrocks.
