"Climbing was my first sport. I started when I was 26. Although I started climbing big mountains and mountaineering, I'm now mostly a sport climber.
My Favorite accomplishment was when I was mentally strong enough ti refuse top rope and started leading my own routes. It took a couple of years and a lot of work. I would cry so many times. I'm so proud of myself for pushing through and allowing my mental state to slowly get there."
