Rostyn grew up in Sheridan, Wyoming. Where at a young age a family friend took him on backpacking trip and he immediately fell in love with the outdoors. One time in particular he was on a 9 day backpacking trip in the Bighorn Mountains. He was Just ten miles from the car, he remembered turning a corner in the trail and the scenery change into a big open v-shaped canyon called Florence Canyon. He was overwhelmed by beauty and majesty. This seemed to be the turning point in Rostyn’s young life and this is the day he found his true passion (even though he didn’t know it yet). After this Rostyn spent all his free time in the mountains exploring, and searching for adventure.
