The first time I tried climbing I was terrified; of the height, of falling and mostly of failing. I was climbing in Ontario, where I’m from, at a college gym and was simply trying to prove myself that I could make it to the top. Despite the fear, I found myself coming back again and again. I was hooked. Climbing has truly shaped my life since then – pulling me west to mountains, inspiring me to travel, providing experiences and friends to share them with and even a career. A decade after that first go at climbing, I’m still just trying to get to the top, but now with a lot less fear and a lot more passion for the process!
