Hi, I’m Lucy Vollbrecht. I am a Ph.D. candidate and instructor at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Due to to the COVID-19 pandemic, I spent the last year in Flagstaff, AZ, where I climbed my first few v10s. The gymnastic movement in roof climbing is my absolute favorite. Now that I am back in the Southeast, my goal is to build my competency in the local style and put down some hard boulders here, too. I’ve got my eyes on a few already…
Education and social justice are core values of mine. I helped coordinate the local route-renaming effort in Flagstaff this past year. I believe strongly that the outdoors should be a safe space for everyone.

Who’s Pad Is That Anyway?
Now more than ever, we feel it’s important to acknowledge each other. To give room for everyone to exist within our climbing community. Hopefully, it returns to us as well.
