"Do no harm. Take no sh*t"
GET TO KNOW CAITIE
After an eventful career in Real Estate, Finance and Construction in his 20's, Corey stubbled upon climbing via a friend. This discounted visit to a local climbing gym would change the course of his life forever and lead him to start Climb Culture and the Climb Like a Girl campaign with Caitie (who he met climbing).
WHY DO YOU CLIMB?
Climbing aligns with so many of my core values as a person, more so than any other activity. It helps me stay physically healthy, gets me outside into nature, allows me to meet and socialize with like-minded people, gives me goals to strive for and helps me keep my mind sharp. I don't think many other sports offer all this.
3 PROUDEST CLIMBING ACHIEVEMENTS
1. Successfully launching the Climb Like a Girl campaign and raising $4500 for young women in Nepal.
2. Ticking "Wages of Fear" (24/5.12a) at Kangaroo Point.
3. Bolting my first route "Take a Walk" (24/5.12a)
MOST MEMORABLE CLIMB
Bunny Bucket Buttress in the Blue Mountains.
CURRENT PROJECT / GOAL
To visit and document all the most popular crags in Australia and climb all the mega classics in those areas that are within my grade range.
BEST ADVICE TO NEW CLIMBERS
Climb for your own reasons and within your own definition of acceptable risk. There are going to be climbers who are both more risk adverse and less risk adverse than you; and that's ok. Don't ever feel pressured to take risks you don't want to take.
