I started competing in 2015 in the Coupe Quebec Lead Climbing Circuit, which to my surprise I won. I then participated at Difficulty Nationals in May of that year in Saanich (British Columbia), placing third in Canadian Open.


In 2016, I won the Provincial Championships for a second year in a row, and my current national ranking was seventh after competing at Difficulty Nationals in Canmore (Alberta) in May of that year.

One of my goals for 2016 was to compete in the Lead World Cup Circuit and to represent Canada at the World Championships held in Paris in september.


This was a valuable experience, testing me how to deal with mental pressure, to focus solely on climbing. However, competing at this level made me realize that my true passion was for climbing on rock, seeking my own challenges and inspiring lines.
