Climbing

Climbing has been a love of mine since childhood. In high school, I learned to rock climb with friends and took trips to Hammond Pond and the Boston Rock Gym. I also worked on a small climbing wall at Brookline High School. In college, I met many more people who were interested in climbing and my friends and I took regular trips to Rumney. I was a member of the Dartmouth Outing and Mountaineering Clubs. Since college, I've helped organize a bunch of climbing trips with friends around the world and have gotten into ice climbing and mountaineering. I trained regularly at MetroRock in Everett, MA while in Boston and now train at Vertical World, Stone Gardens, and the Synapse bouldering wall in Seattle.
