10 Essentials: Questions

How did you get involved with The Mountaineers?

I had just moved back home after finishing school and needed to make some local friends so I gave scrambling a try.

What motivates you to get outside with us?

I like to challenge myself and have found a great group of other climbers to push harder with. I also enjoy helping students learn.

What's your favorite Mountaineers memory?

Probably standing on top of Mount Olympus with a great group and seeing all the ice that looked like frozen waves.

Who/What inspires you?

Mostly the people around me that are just great people and climbers.

What does adventure mean to you?

A little bit of unknown and something that will be challenging but fun. I haven't had an adventure yet that wasn't fun.

Lightning Round
Sunrise or sunset? Sunrise.
Smile or game face? Game face.
What's your 11th Essential? My fanny pack that holds all my food so I remember to eat during the day. Looks nerdy but very practical!
Post-adventure meal of choice? Salad or pizza.
If you could be a rock star at any outdoor activity overnight, what would it be? Ice climbing for sure.
