Communication Officer - Sahra-manon Muehlheim 

Sahra-manon was born in a small Swiss village. Her passion for high altitude started early. In 2003 Sahra-manon moved to Seattle, U.S. where she embarked on her career at Microsoft. It was here, in her early 20's that Sahra-manon fell in love with rock climbing. Sahra-manon was fortunate to climb several places in the U.S. Some of her favourite locations known as the Frenchman Coulee in Vantage Washington, Smith Rocks, Red Rocks and Squamish BC to name a few. Sahra-manon competed locally however her passion will always be outdoor climbing.


In 2014 Sahra-manon was in a serious MVA where she suffered a C7 compression fracture and was forced to stop climbing. At the time her son was only six years old and had already been climbing for four years. 

In 2017 Sahra-manon decided it was time to get back on the wall. Her son Kaylen who also shares the same passion was a big contributor in helping his mom get back on the wall. Sahra-manon now climbs with her son and cannot wait for what the future holds as their climbing progresses together
