How were you first introduced to climbing? "My family is actually friends with Sean McColl’s family, so we grew up together. His parents are my godparents, I call them “Aunt” and “Uncle”, and vice versa. I have looked up to him my entire life, so when he and his brother started climbing competitively I wanted to as well. I started climbing with the team at my local gym soon after and was immediately hooked." What inspires you to keep climbing? "These days I love the mental and physical challenge that climbing, training, and competition provide. Being able to link difficult movement so that it flows nicely is one of the greatest feelings in the world. And I love the opportunities climbing provides to get outside and play on rock and to travel." Photo: Shane Murdoch

I told @marissarenae89 there's pizza on the wall 😂 #climbingstories #bouldergym

I spent the weekend in Joshua Tree with this lovely lady who graciously tolerated my incessant photo taking especially when she's the subject. This trip we focused on the Wonderland of Rocks. We took our time getting to the park on Day 1 and enjoyed some time by the Dam once we got there (there is an incredible amount of water in the Dam this year, the most I've seen since I was about 8) afterwards we walked into the wonderland and spends the afternlln looking around at some of our potential domes for the weekend. Day 2 we found ourselves at Lenticular Done early on and @ctao0 put up Mental Physics 5.7 (blows double cross out of the water) and I led Dazed and Confused 5.9 which had really great footwork. The rest of our day was spent walking to the cornerstone, losing psych, being blown off the Red Obelisk, and then searching for Catherine's film camera, (which we found in the bowels of the approach to the cornerstone!). On Day 3 we headed to South Astro dome and climbed Breakfast of Champions where Catherine battled a buldge with a awkward corner crack and after several attempts pushed through her fear and the crux to let our a yip of joy at the rest above! Next we moved to Solid Gold which was unfortunately back in te shade (much to my demise after being mostly cold all weekend) I started up feeling apprehensive but confident that this style of footwork intensive climbing plays to my strengths. Between the 6th and 7th bolts is a run out just shy of deserving an r in Joshua Tree and after meticulously picking my way up the wall I found myself only a few feet below the 7th bolt and many feet above the previous. Just before grabbing the Thank God Hold my left foot blew, I gasped and put everything I had into my right foot and hands barely escaping a 30 foot fall. I picked a new foot and pushed my way to the next bolt. We topped out the next pitch and headed to the hidden valley campground in search of Sun.

Happy 6 month anniversary, new ACL and meniscus! 🎉

My knee is recovering and getting stronger so much faster than the doctors predicted. I'll still definitely be working out kinks for the next months or years and taking extra rest days but I'm elated to have been able to overflow with mountain happiness this season when I thought I wouldn't be able to.

Above all else, after 6 surgeries, this has been a reminder of how important people are. How people are the most important. I'm counting my lucky stars for all of the incredible people I have, near and far. They are what make life so rich 🤗

We headed to the San Vito climbing festival. For me the roasting in the sun continued - after leaving the guide book in the car & asking a friendly Swiss climber for directions @mr_seabass30 spent the day sandbagged on 8a while @mikecmonsterchaney was at least able to film from shelter in the shade. At least the car has air-conditioning!! 🔆 📚 😐 🚘

It's definitely Fall in the high county now! @tessgferguson breaks a good inch of ice at Iceberg Lake for a refill.

We learned that the temps are a bit too low, winds a bit too blustery, and sun is at all the wrong angles to climb Mithril Dihedral in late September but getting into the mountains with this lady is always a treat! #dayhikersends

"C’è silenzio qui. Anche le urla delle numerose cordate che affollano la via normale e il suono della campana di vetta che ci hanno accompagnato fino adesso si sono zittiti, rimarcando un altro stato di separazione. Mi guardo attorno, il tempo scorre lentamente in una misura che non riesco a quantificare, mentre rimango immobile sul ripiano sul quale mi ritrovo in un precario equilibrio" @nickynarduz https://rampegoni.wordpress.com/2016/08/06/ombra-e-silenzio/ #rampegoni#memories#oltrepiave#parcodolomitifriulane#campaniledivalmontanaia#pareteovest#hiddenside#outofcontrol#climbingstories#mountainslovers#igersfvg

When you get spanked off a climb so you lay there staring at it while funneling a bag of Doritos down your throat 👌#spicynacho
