Q: What are your climbing goals?
Keep getting better, meet more inspiring people and have fun!

Q: Most memorable climbing experience?
I’ve once hurt my arm on the rope when I fell while learning how to lead climb. It took a month to heal and overcoming the fear of lead climbing again was horrible but it felt so good once I did.

Q: What do you like most about MyClimb?
To be able to see my progress and identify what is the best way of training for me.

Q: What do you enjoy most about climbing?
I like being able to push myself further than I thought I could go, I also love how climbing brings people together. I’ve had so much fun and met so many cool people since I started climbing.

Q: How did you start climbing?
My sister has been climbing since she was nine, but she never really talked about it, she just did it because she didn’t want to do any other sport. One person once asked me “How is it even possible you’ve never tried it when your sister has been doing it for so long?” A few months later I went to climb with her and then I signed up for weekly classes. I quickly moved to an advanced class and I never stopped climbing since.

Q: Favorite Climbing Discipline?
Lead climbing. The perfect mix of dangerous and empowering. But bouldering is also great.

Q: Favorite Place to climb or destination?
Boulder Brighton for it’s amazing atmosphere. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful.
