Keith Luscinski jokes that while at Cornell, he earned a degree in Industrial Engineering but majored in climbing. His daylight hours were spent either at the climbing wall or in the canopies of Ithaca's old growth hardwood trees. At night, pressing school assignments took precedence over sleep. Working for COE, Keith has led students to the top of 2,000-foot tall cliffs and into the canopies of rainforest trees and Giant Sequoias. Since 2006, he has managed to combine his rope skills and engineering background while working as a Level 3 industrial rope access technician.  Keith is also an active member of the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT) and also the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee on Fall Protection.
