Ellisa Andres - ACT - Junior Female - Lead & Boulder
I started climbing when I was 8 in 2013, I attended a friends birthday party and just fell in love with the sport, I loved the challenge and problem solving involved. I started training and competing seriously in 2015 after the NSW/ACT state bouldering titles of that year. Since then I have competed in almost every comp I could.
The thing I love most about climbing is the environment and the community, especially the excitement at climbing competitions, everyone in the community is so supportive.
My favourite discipline of climbing is bouldering, although in the last year I have started to enjoy lead climbing more.
I don’t really have a home gym as I train in Wollongong and Sydney at a variety of gyms but I do have amazing support from Mont Adventure Equipment.
I am so excited to be back on the Australian Youth Team after 2 years of covid and 1 year of serious studying and I look forward to my future in climbing.
