I started climbing when I was around 5 years old, on trips with my family, to Joshua Tree and Lake Tahoe in California and eventually in the local climbing gym.

I have many fond childhood climbing memories! I think my main motivations for climbing, when I was really young, was to be competitive with my brothers and explore outside. Now, I love to climb for the creativity, movement, adventure and community that climbing offers.

Why MyClimb?

Why MyClimb?

The initial idea to create a climbing community, that values all types of climbing and at all levels, was planted when I was 20 years old. I had taken time off of school to embark on an eight month climbing road trip from California to the East Coast of the United States and back.

During my road trip, I camped out of my truck, that was stuffed with bouldering pads, traditional and ice climbing gear, and tight sport climbing shoes!

On my trip, I met so many supportive climbers from all types of climbing backgrounds from weekend warriors all the way to climbers who were fully committed to living the climbing dirtbag lifestyle. The one thing that connected all of us was that we were all extremely passionate about climbing.

I ended my trip thinking how great it would be to stay connected to all of my new friends and also to keep up with how their climbing was going.

This desire for connection was the seed that led to creating the MyClimb Community, a place where climbers can connect and share their passion for climbing.
