I live in a small town in the Green Mountains in central Vermont. In the fall of 2009 I took a climbing clinic at Green Mountain Rock Climbing Center and fell in love with climbing! I went from never climbing to climbing non-stop. The next spring, after training all winter I competed in the USA Climbing SCS series and also began climbing outside. Over the course of the summer and fall, I got hooked on bouldering and have been doing it 4-5 days per week ever since. I love to solve puzzles and be physically challenged; bouldering is the perfect match. Climbing new lines is what I enjoy the most....finding new boulders...imagining the line...clean it...climb it. Last summer and fall I put up over 70 new boulder problems. As long as the movement is fun and the challenge is there, I'll climb it! My favorite shoes are the Team 5.10!
