Climbing, specifically bouldering.
Favorite Mammut Gear:
Pilgrim Down Jacket, Rockland Shorts, and Mammut Liquid Chalk (it has kept me sane on so many warm days).
Favorite Climbing Area:
Squamish, British Columbia. I’ve had nothing but great experiences with great people there.
The Reckoning Stand, V10, in Squamish. Everything about that climb felt so improbable, until it didn’t.
I’m originally from Denver, CO. I’ve been climbing for half my life now, and can’t imagine an activity I’d enjoy more. Over the years, I have competed in youth and open comps, sport climbed all over Colorado, and bouldered all over the world. I spent the last year living in my Subaru Forester so I could travel and climb all over the west coast of the US. Gold Bar, WA and Red Rocks, NV are both amazing areas I can’t wait to return to. I’m planning to continue driving around Canada and the US climbing the coolest problems I can find and having fun along the way.Flannery Shay-Nemirow
