What we'll do
"Ten time rock climbing national champion Kai Lightner is reaching new heights with his athletic skills as one of a few professional black rock climbers. When I would tell [black] people that my sport was rock-climbing they would look at me funny, and ask What is that? We dont do that, Lightner said."
