I started climbing very young, early 2000ish. My step dad got my family into climbing and we have been hooked ever since!
Then I started training near 2006 or a little later when I joined the team at my local gym to climb with friends.I started doing comps in 2006, then I quickly joined the U.S. Climbing team in 2007 and have been on it consecutively through today for youth and several years for adult.
I love to climb outside; My favorite area is either Newlin Creek in Colorado or magic wood!!! The rock in both places is great quality and packed with great routes of various styles and movements.
Speaking of holds, I probably like crimps or pinches better, then slopes. And I like overhanging walls but not so much horizontal roofs
I much prefer bouldering, however it is a good change to hope on a rope on occasion.
