In this episode of The Wild Ones, a new series from filmmaker Logan Bockrath and Adventures on the Gorge about people who left the comfort of more traditional paths for the unknowns of life on the river, we meet Kyle Kent. Kent was well on his way to becoming a pharmacist when he decided to instead go after what he truly enjoyed—rock climbing. By virtue of a coin toss, Kent wound up guiding in West Virgina (the flip side would have landed him in Yosemite, California), and he's been there ever since.
