What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?

 

I have always had a passion for climbing, when I was younger I used to climb the trees in my backyard all the time. I was first introduced to the sport at age 8, I had a party at (Hangdog) my local gym. I instantly fell in love with the sport after being able to rainbow up the steep overhang. I have been climbing for over 3 years now and this is my third year competing.

 

What is your home gym?

 

Dynomite and Hangdog in Wollongong but I also train at Nine Degrees with First Ascent.

 

What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals?

 

I’m very proud of how I climbed at Nationals this year, placing second in boulder and lead, henceforth making the Australian Climbing team. My goal is to do as well as I can at my first international comp and hopefully make semi-finals.

 

Do you have any sponsors?

 

Dynomite Indoor Climbing Gym in Wollongong.

 

Who are your Idols?

 

I admire Alex Honnold and Monique Forestier.

 

Fun fact

 

I could tie into a rope to scale a wall before I could tie my shoelaces.
