CARTHAGE, New York (WWNY) - A Carthage graduate has made a name for himself in a sport that literally reaches new heights.

He’s getting recognized, not only nationally, but internationally.

Say “hello” to Tyler Kempney. This 2009 Carthage graduate is making a name for himself in ice climbing.

It begs the question: how does a kid from Carthage become one of the elite ice climbers in the world?

He’s been doing competitive ice climbing since 2017. As a matter of fact, he just had a competition this past weekend.

His skills have led him to travel to different countries representing the USA.

At age 30, Kempney shows no signs of stopping.
