Dru Mack grew up climbing in the backwoods of Kentucky, the Red River Gorge became his home and eventually stomping ground. Dru’s infectious psyche is what connects him with everyone at the crag, that motivation also lead him to sending some of the hardest routes in the Red like Southern Smoke (8c+ or 5.14c) and Pure Imagination (8c+ or 5.14c.) Climbing has taken Dru to amazing places around the world, like Spain, France and South Africa. He hopes to continue using climbing as a vehicle to send hard routes, experience different cultures and see beautiful destinations around the globe.
