CLIMB CULTURE ARTISTUS based climber, surface pattern designer and illustrator on a mission to change the norm of what an outdoors person looks like.
WHY DO YOU CLIMB?
I started climbing as a way to spend more quality time with my husband and while I get plenty of that it’s really become so much more. I love spending the time outdoors in unique places, climbing routes that are mentally challenging as well as physical, and spending quality time with my friends. Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment I get when finishing a difficult climb.

MOST MEMORABLE CLIMB
My most memorable climb was a time when I actually didn’t end up climbing at all. It was my first time climbing outside and my husband and I went with two friends to climb in Leavenworth. My husband had a goal of doing a small multi pitch with one friend and I planned to do a couple of easy climbs and just tag along. A 30 min approach turned into a 1 hour approach, the temps were 20 degrees and the sun was going down behind the mountains.
The second friend and I decided to leave early and head back to the cars, instead we immediately got lost following cairns that led to nowhere. Got into some sketchy rock drop offs and bushwacked for an eternity back to the car. We never found the actual trail.
CURRENT PROJECT / GOAL
My current goal is to get more comfortable leading outside and maybe do a few more multi pitch routes. I would love to go back to Red Rocks to climb!
