Abstract Bigwood (b. 1969) was born in Claremont, California, but moved to Colorado where he became what he describes as a "compulsive and addictive climber." He moved to Moab, Utah, where he was involved in route development in Southern Utah. He and Dave Medara started a guiding company, Moab Desert Adventures. Kirsten (b. 1972) is from Irondequoit, New York. She discovered her passion for climbing while working as a guide on Lake Superior during her college years. She abandoned a career in engineering to pursue climbing throughout the country. She is involved in HERA: Climb for Life, an organization that raises money for breast cancer research. Noah and Kirsten are married and have a son, Benjamin, who makes several appearances over the course of the interview. Interview is part of the Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project.
