Hometown: Des Moines, IA
January 16, 2013
Hi all! I recently relocated to the Denver area from Des Moines, IA. Excited to meet fellow climbers and get back to the rock!
I was an avid climber for 6 years, with a two year lull (not much to climb in Iowa!) I am currently studying a Master's Degree in Recreation, Sports and Tourism with hopes of working with at-risk youth and outdoor education.
Harness, shoes, helmet, ATC, rope, slings, plenty of biners, 12 quick draws, approach gear...
I was originally climbing and leading 5.10's comfortably. Looking to gain additional experience and become a much more serious climber!
I first learned to climb at an Iowa state park with a few college friends, avid climbers themselves. I immediately fell in love with the feel and experience of each climb, regardless of its difficulty. It is where I am truly myself, in my element! Very excited to get back to this passion of mine.
