#gofundme Hey Friends! Competition Ice Climbing is still a relatively new thing here in Canada 🇨🇦. To gain experience, I travelled to the states once in November to compete and will be again in a few weeks to have some practice before the World Cup in Denver in February. I’m looking for some support to offset some of my travel and training costs. Please see the link in my bio. Thank you in advance! (And apologize for the typo) 😜 #uiaaiceclimbing #uiaagoals #rockymountainmuse #womenwhoclimb #iceclimbing #mixtress #getoutside #teamcanada #ourayicefest #getstrong #maximizeyourapeindex #strongwomenusetools #drytooling #drytoolingtraining #climbingwithpointythings #climbing @alpineclubcan @camp_usa @arcteryx @arcteryxcalgary @krukonogi @krukonogi_us @mec

Humble Beginnings. #tbt 8 years ago today, I tried ice climbing for the first time! The ice tower in Winnipeg run @cesbtower (our local @alpineclubcan section) provided everything including ski boots, crampons, ice axes with leashes, belayers, and a heated outhouse. Such an amazing community to be a part of. Thanks to @rickatcrux, @r_e_clement and @billandgerda for getting me interested all those years ago!

What an amazing day yesterday! Urs Hole is one of the coolest places I have ever gotten to explore despite being mostly grade 2 ice. Thanks for the great day @j.c.dubeau!

I cannot put into words how stoked I am to see these photos. Seeing the determination on my face is exactly the motivation I need to continue training. I haven’t been that persistent and focused on finishing something in a long time. Thanks again @climbcityrock for hosting an amazing Ice Fest! (I’ll for sure be back next year...but stronger 💪) 📷: Karen Volkhardt Thanks to @dr.jacquelynperron and @adventuresporttherapy for fixing me 😜

Gotta start somewhere. Part two of training - build endurance to hang on! 2:00 on and 5:00 off for 6 rounds. My arms might hurt tomorrow. 😜 @camp_usa @krukonogi @canmoreboulderingcave

What an amazing comp hosted by @climbcityrock in Colorado Springs, CO. Still managed to make it to finals after being sick or injured for the last month or so. Definitely motivated for future things to come. Congrats to everyone else who crushed this weekend! And thanks to my climbing and travel buddies @j.c.dubeau and @dgeiger1 for also taking the plunge in trying a competition. Was a great way to spend my birthday weekend! Now, does anyone have a hot tub I can borrow? 😜 #uiaagoals #drytooling #coloradosprings #climbing #climbingcompetition #womenwhoclimb #womenonlead #climbingwithpointythings #birthday #soremuscles @camp_usa @krukonogi @arcteryx

Missing this while I lie at home getting rid of an awful cold I seem to have caught. 📷: @crazycavernick
