Jeffrey Scott Fraser, a successful business executive, currently owns and operates Tsaina Lodge in Alaska. Additionally, Jeffrey Fraser invests in the career matching industry and spends his free time on outdoor hobbies such as fishing and rock climbing.
Rock climbing, a sporting activity and form of exercise in which individuals climb across rock formations, can be competitive or just for fun. It can take place either outdoors on real rock or indoors on artificial surfaces. A physical and demanding sport, rock climbing includes several different forms including traditional climbing, big wall climbing, bouldering, and top roping.
Top roping is the form of rock climbing most suitable for beginners. Climbers participating in top roping are paired with a partner and are always connected to a rope. One partner remains on the ground and uses a friction device to feed rope line to the partner climbing the wall. Operation of the friction device, which also catches the line in the case of falls, is known as belaying.
In addition, an auto-belay can be used in place of a partner for top roping. Auto-belays act as an anchor for the climber and automatically catch the rope to prevent falls.
Jeffery Scott Fraser founded the National Information Consortium and Kansas Information Consortium in the 1990s as companies that provided individual and corporate clients with efficient ways of interacting with the government via the Internet.
