Discipline: Climbing Team

ABOUT:

Growing up in the rural farm lands of Western Colorado, rock climbing was the furthest thing from my mind. I didn’t even know it existed. For years I’d grown to appreciate the outdoors adventuring through the desert; but never really connected or understood the beauty of being a part of nature. The outdoors was a tool to be used. When I was seventeen that all changed. I was introduced to climbing and the complexity of the sport weaved itself into my life. I was no longer an observer but an active participant in the world around me.
