What really motivates me to climb harder and harder is not necessarily that I want to push my limits or show who's best, but climbing harder and harder routes makes it more fun.
Climbing is great, and I don't think I'll ever tire of it, because there are so many different disciplines.
The Nose is a beautiful route. The best thing is that, in one day, you get to climb so much. You climb and climb and climb the whole day.
I didn't want to hike to the top of El Capitan and rappel down the route, and start fixing lines. For me it was really important to try to climb it from the ground up at first.
I think it's possible to climb the Dawn Wall in a single day. No matter what, it would be really, really hard.
Normally, it's more efficient to climb fast.
I finished my degree so I'm definitely hoping I have some more time to climb.
I am full time athlete.
