Competitions

 

I started competing in 2015 in the Coupe Quebec Lead Climbing Circuit. I won every competition, as well as the Provincial Championships. I participated in the Lead National Championship in 2015 in British Columbia, placing third in the Open category.

 

In 2016, I won the Provincial Championships for a second year in a row, and ranked seventh in the Open category after competing at Lead Nationals in Alberta. In 2016 I also competed on the Lead World Cup circuit in Europe and represented Canada at the World Championships in Paris-Bercy.

 

Competing internationally was a valuable experience, teaching me how to deal with mental pressure in order to focus solely on climbing. However, competing at this level made me realize that my true passion was for climbing on rock, where I can find my own challenges and lines that inspire me.
