My greatest achievement (and challenge) has been learning to love myself and respect my body. Climbing has given me many successes, but its most significant benefit is to aide this process.

The feeling of achievement I feel when successfully climbing a route is amazing and addictive, but it last only for a fleeting moment. This list of my climbing achievements is purely a way to measure myself. The true success is achieving peace and balance within myself.

Now, I spend most of my time living on the road in Europe where there are more opportunities to further my climbing skills.
