As a junior I competed in the Youth World Championships in Imst, Austria, but now I prefer to travel and climb outside. I currently set routes for competitions and day-to-day at The Spot Gym. Outdoors I have climbed hard problems and put up new climbs in many areas. For winter climbing I usually travel to Europe or camps in the desert (California, Southern Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and West Texas), and in the summer I enjoy high alpine bouldering at areas including Independence Pass, Mount Evans, and Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
The dry deserts in the winter and big hikes at high altitude in the summer are very physically demanding, and I have found Vitalyte to be a crucial part of keeping happy, healthy, and hydrated for long days of climbing and during recovery and rest phases. I also love Vitalyte for keeping me going during long days of travel and the demanding work of setting for competitions. In addition to Vitalyte, I am a representative for La Sportiva and for Flashed Climbing.
