I started climbing about six years ago at Planet Granite in Sunnyvale. I initially started climbing as a fun way to get fit, but soon found it engulfing every aspect of my life and it has now shaped me into the person i am today. I initially found myself spending 6-7 days a week in the gym for several hours a day and then eventually discovered outdoor climbing by going on my first real trip to Bishop, CA which is now my favorite place in the world. My most proud ascent at Bishop is The Mandala Sit v13, and my most proud ascent to date is Kingslayer v13 in Index, WA. I am continually gaining psych every day since i started climbing, and don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
