Kyle Dempster

PROBAR® Athlete
From: Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT
Focus: Alpine Climbing, with a particular love for climbing in Asia.

I started climbing twenty years ago at the age of twelve on the granite cracks in little cottonwood canyon, close to my current home in Salt Lake City. In those twenty years, climbing has exposed me to a variety of mediums, rock, ice, big walls, but none have been more exciting than a high mountain top in the Himalaya.

Six years ago, while seeking balance in my life and a pursuit other than climbing, a friend and myself opened Higher Ground Coffee Shop in Salt Lake City. Our business and my love for climbing share a similarity.

PROBAR BOLT® keeps me fueled on long cold days in the alpine without wrecking my stomach. PROBAR Meal® bars are simply delicious real food with awesome ingredients. PRBOAR BASE® bars are a great dessert and fuel recovery after a long day.

When Not Adventuring

Training for climbing adventures occupies a lot of time. Lifting and running primarily. I love to fly fish, eat good fresh food, and spend time with Jewell, family, and friends.


Many expeditions and adventures for 2015. Most importantly, I'm hoping to finish a 4 year project to solo the north buttress of Mt. Hunter in Alaska. Also planning my 6th trip to Pakistan, to the Ogre 2 and Latok 1.
