On the Rock

From the moment I left the equestrian world, I had been looking for something to pursue and pour my heart and soul into. In October 2010, I joined a friend for three months to climb in Spain, Morocco, and Turkey. This is when my true passion for climbing unfolded.


After climbing full-time for three months, I knew I wanted to pursue this mental and physical challenge wholeheartedly for the rest of my life.


After that trip, I started frequenting the gym more seriously, and started to significantly improve due to my motivation and dedication.


Although I used the climbing gym for training, it was real rock that captured my imagination. Out on the crags I climbed as many routes as possible, building up skills and experience.


Climbing took over my life and soon I was spending a lot of time at the crags and on climbing trips.
