I sort of found climbing by luck. I was looking for a job before starting university and someone told me the climbing gym in Edmonton, Vertically inclined, were hiring. I knew nothing about climbing, and have never climbed before, but I applied anyway. I guess it was my swimming instructor skills that got me the job. Since then, I have been passionate about growing and challenging myself in this sport.
What I love about climbing is the places it can take you and the wonderful people you meet. I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to some climbing destinations such as Red River Gorge, Margalef, Kalymnos, Hueco Tanks and Joe’s Valley. Still on my list is South Africa and Australia.
I’ve been out ice climbing and went to the bugaboos once… I think I will stick with bouldering and sport climbing, and the occasional epic multi pitch day 🙂
