Brette was born in Lake Tahoe, California, but now lives on the west coast of British Columbia and spends a good portion of her time on expeditions. Brette’s climbing stems from her love for the mountains. She has been persuing her dreams by climbing remote big walls and developing new lines. She has established first ascents in Canada, the United States, and Patagonia. It is both the adventure and creativity that continue to drive her to climb these mountains. She aims to combine her climbing skills to develop ever more difficult and desirable lines.
