A Climbing Life

To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard of life is to risk nothing. The person risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering or sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, live and love.

Since 2002 Rock Climbing has been the focus of my life… It is the only thing that remains constant in my life up till the current day! Through climbing, I am creating a life that holds meaning for me. I want to experience everything life has to throw at me and am super motivated to be the best I can be. Hopefully, in the process I can expand other people’s horizons. Inspiring them to step outside of the preconceived norm, and live life to it’s fullest.


“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. “
