I started climbing in my early 20s after a friend suggested to try out top roping and I instantly fell in love with it. I started working at Climb Base5 shortly after starting climbing in 2012. The best aspect of working at Climb Base5 is how inclusive we are. No matter what level you are at, beginner or expert, you will be cheered on from staff, friends, and random people in the gym. I am so happy whenever I am surrounded by these people. I love climbing due to the continual challenge that it provides as you increase in grades or try a totally new style like trad climbing. It is a sport I hope to be doing for the rest of my life.
