Fletcher’s writing appears in The Sun, Post Defiance, Mad in America, Climbing, Rock and Ice, and The American Alpine Journal among others. In addition, his work appears in dozens of medical journals.
For Fletch, rock climbing is corporeal storytelling—a meditation of movement over stone that attunes him to his innards. Each climb becomes a story unfolding along a vertical path, one rich in lessons. About managing fear while tapping into the joy of each moment. About trusting others along the way, including his climbing partners who hold his life in their hands at the other end of the rope.
