Why did you get into climbing?
The physical and mental challenges of climbing got me hooked, but climbing means so much more to me now. It enables me to travel to beautiful remote places, meet like-minded people, build lifetime friendships, and lastly it has motivated me to maintain a healthy active lifestyle.
What style of climbing do you specialize in?
Bouldering will probably always be my favorite type of climbing, however I have been enjoying sport climbing quite a bit lately. :)
Where is your favorite place to climb?
Tell us about a memorable climb you have done:
Kielbasa 12c. This climb is sustained and powerful, I struggled to bolt-to-bolt this route my first couple times on it, so I was pretty psyched to piece it together after a few trips to Tensleep last summer.
Favorite thing about STATIC's climbing bags?
They are durable and made with care. The Pendleton bags are my favorite.
