Five Ten CORE Award 2012 - Olivia Brumwell

Five Ten CORE Award 2012 - Olivia Brumwell
September 03, 2012 -  Olivia Brumwell    

Olivia Shea Brumwell 2012 CORE Award winner. 


I am so excited and honored to be the winner of this amazing award. It is a great feeling to be highlighted in the climbing community in this way. I have spent my whole life climbing and this is my best first accent yet! This is my first blog entry as a Five Ten sponsored athlete and I could not think of a better way to kick off my blog! 

As a climber it I always try to do my best and push my limits, but trust my natural instincts as well. In this case, when I wrote the essays to submit for the award, I wrote what I felt and what came easy. I was so happy to get this award because it made me feel validated as writer, and a climber, all in one. 

Thank you so much Five Ten for this opportunity. I'm so excited to be part of the Five Ten Team.

Also thank you to Mike Rougeux, my coach, for his letter of recommendation.
