Hi, I’m Alannah Yip. I climb because I love the level of intense focus required to climb your best. That feeling of 100% concentration when you’re trying your hardest, when nothing else in the world matters, is what I’m always chasing. I have climbed and competed since I was 10 years old have no plans of stopping. Currently, I a member of the Canadian National Team in bouldering, lead, and speed. My goal is to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. I have climbed V10 on two continents, 5.14a in Squamish, and have a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia.
The Hueco pad, I find that having both the large pad with no folds coupled with the large thin pad is so useful when trying to pad larger fall zones or unstable landings. It’s my go-to for every day in Squamish for sure!
