Lauren Callaway

Discipline: Climbing Team


I spent most of my life close to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and more recently the Wasatch and Uintah Ranges in Utah. Climbing came to me as something to do after I got laid off from my first job out of college in 2008, but is now a crucial part of my life. It’s a constant quest to find balance for me as I navigate early wake-ups and night sessions to squeeze as much climbing as I can into my 40-hour work week. When I am home, I am inspired by the climbing in my backyard; Utah has so much climbing history and so many amazing benchmark lines in all disciplines.



1. Bear Hug, V8, Little Cottonwood Canyon (hardest boulder I’ve done, hands down, by a lot)
2. V10 and harder in Rocky Mountain National Park, Hueco Tanks, Bishop, and Little Cottonwood Canyon
3. 5.13+ sport climbs in Oliana, American Fork, Saint George, Maple Canyon, and Logan Canyon
4. Traveling to Western China to develop traditional lines (zero of which I actually redpointed) within 6 months of learning to crack climb and place gear
5. A lot of personal growth and a sense of bravery that I don’t think that I would have had without climbing
