Hailing from the Lone Star State, Caleb Simpson is “The Organic Climber”. Caleb is the owner of Bearded Brothers, A Wholesome Snackfood Company that is currently producing raw organic energy bars, with plans to launch other healthy organic snacks. Bearded Brothers got it’s start in March of 2001 and debuted by passing out samples with Gowalla at SxSw Interactive and Music Festival.
An avid fan of trad climbing, Caleb enjoys being on the rock as much as possible. He prefers long easy multi pitch routes over hard sport routes and bouldering. Along with climbing, Caleb enjoys running, cycling, and the occasional swim. Having recently completed his first triathlon he plans on entering the Cactus Rose 50 mile Ultra Marathon in October, 2012.
Caleb is also a recent convert to vegetarianism (as of August, 2008) with a passion for RAW foods and healthy eating. Though not driven by ethical reasons, recent discoveries have at least opened his eyes a bit more to ethical issues in the food industry. The vegetarian lifestyle may not be a mainstay in his life, but as for now it is playing an important part in his overall health and well-being.
Aside from climbing, photography, cycling, running, and being a food nut, Caleb is a devoted follower of Christ. His love for God and others motivates his life’s decisions above all things. Although like most human beings he can be quite selfish at times and be highly motivated by selfish decisions.
