Fifteen years ago my sister and I stumbled on a portable rinky-dink climbing wall at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Today I’m proud to be a member of the National team representing Canada at international World Cup events. I was primarily focused on lead climbing as a youth athlete and attended six Youth World Championships. My psych is now geared more toward bouldering, but my technique is still strongly influenced by my lead climbing roots. In training I tend to put a heavy emphasis on movement, previewing and the mental aspects of climbing. My strengths lie in gymnastic or cryptic movements, so the quickest way to my heart is to set me a volume-only boulder.
