Antonio Barbera Personality Portrait Assignment

Joe Saliski, a sophomore history major at Loyola University Maryland, belays a student climbing at the Fitness and Aquatic Center, where Saliski works, on March 21, 2012.

Saliski chalks his hands to prepare for his own climb. Some hours of the day are slower than others, according to Saliski, and he often passes the time improving his climbing technique.

Saliski prepares himself to boulder, another form of climbing that uses no ropes or pulleys and is performed at low heights.

Saliski begins a traditional climb, barefoot, saying his feet feel more comfortable and that he has better grip than with shoes on.

Saliski takes a moment to relax between climbing, belaying and supervising at the rock wall. He is pictured alongside co-worker and fellow rock climbing enthusiast Laura Dauer, a senior at Loyola.
