Dave Klim

Lead Builder

Dave is based in Maine and has 30 years in the challenge course business, beginning with Project Adventure in 1989. Prior to joining the team at High 5 in 2002, Dave ran his own successful business, Maine Ropes Inc., for three years. He likes going to places that are off the beaten track. “I move around,” he says of his job. “I’m not always in one place. I end up seeing a lot of nice places – camps, retreats, conference centers.” Dave has a deep knowledge of the adventure field, says Jim Grout, and Dave adds that he and all the staff at High 5 are “dedicated to doing a good job for our customers. They’re getting quality training and quality instruction and quality equipment. We stay up with changes in the field and what’s new.”

An avid outdoor enthusiast, he spends his time on home improvement projects and biking when he can. He looks for riding opportunities wherever he happens to be. Dave holds degrees from Lyndon State College and Georgia College and State University.
