Rob Pudner is an avid ice climber who grew up in New Jersey. During college in Vermont he caught the adventure bug and  moved to Bozeman, Montana, ASC’s home base, in 2010.  He was drawn here because of the proximity to world-class ice climbing and other adventure opportunities. Rob has a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies with a minor in adventure recreation and is currently applying to a master’s program in urban planning. In January and February of 2014 he served as a pioneering member of the Landmark survey.  As a mountaineer, Rob might never have visited the plains except through Landmark‘s opportunity to contribute to the creation of what will one day be the largest wildlife refuge in the Continental U.S.  In the video below you can watch Rob reflect on his experience in his own words:
