Grimpeuse hors pair
I live in Toronto, Ontario where I work as an Oncology nurse. I started climbing in 2010 and I've been hooked ever since. My true love is bouldering but I dabble in sport climbing as well. My proudest send to date is a boulder called Dark Age in Hueco Tanks, Texas. It's a V11 high ball that challenged me both physically and mentally; it was my first and only V11 and also it tops out at 25 feet! In sport climbing, I have redpointed several 5.13a's and I hope to climb some even harder lines.
I love climbing for so many reasons. Because I'm a shorter climber (under 5 feet tall!) I often have to figure out alternative beta that will work for my dimensions and I love that problem solving aspect. I also love the sense of community; climbers encouraging one another, sharing beta and keeping pysch levels high. All my closest friends are the ones that I have met through climbing and they are caring, motivated, conscientious individuals who love and respect the outdoors. Finally, climbing has brought me to the most beautiful places. I had the amazing opportunity to take a year long climbing trip, living in a van and travelling around North America with my husband. It was unforgettable! I'm psyched to continue pushing my limits, explore new climbing destinations and promote a sense of community at the gym and the crag.
