I’m am Pacific Northwest born and raised and I grew up in the heart of the kayak industry. Aside from art and horses my passions are climbing, snowboarding, and just being out in nature.
Petzl Arial 9.5mm Rope
I am obsessed with this rope. I was so tired of climbing ropes getting stuck in my belay device at gyms because they were too thick. Its great for multi pitches. It’s worn really well and as long as it’s well taken care of it should take us up and down many more routes!
La Sportiva Mythos Eco Climbing Shoes - Women's
La Sportiva Mythos
A solid all around shoe. Not as aggressive as other styles but it will get the job done and your feet will thank you because these are one of the more comfortable pairs of climbing shoes. They’re great for casual bouldering and sport climbing. I climb in the gym and outside with these often.
Gregory Zulu 35 Pack - Women's
I’ve had mixed feelings about this backpack. I find that it makes my back sore and at times it feels a bit over engineered. But I also REALLY like all the pockets and facets of the pack. I took mine to Thailand and easily fit two weeks worth of clothes + souvenirs into it. The wear and tare has been almost non existent, it’s held up really well. I’ve used it to summit a couple of smaller peaks like south sister and felt it had adequate space. It’s my go to pack for hauling my climbing gear out to walls and I’ve also used it to hike around with my cat and he fits in there just right too. Hah.
Gregory Millcreek 25L Backpack
One of My Favorite Packs
This is hands down my favorite backpack I’ve ever owned. It’s traveled the world with me and it accompanies me on every single work trip across the country on a monthly basis. I can easily fit my camera, lens, laptop, notebook, and other important items neatly inside and it’s always easy to stay organized with all the pockets on the inside. I love that it’s minimal on the outside so it’s never getting stuck or hung up on anything and it fits under seats easily.It’s also my favorite pack to take to the river cause it fits drinks, a blanket, and my cat just perfectly!
K2 Wildheart Snowboard - Women's
I demoed this board a couple years ago and fell in love with it but couldn’t afford a new board until this last winter. It’s super surfy and smooth and because it’s wider you get a lot stability in powder but also on groomers as well. It’s very forgiving and it’s a lot of fun. I absolutely love this board.
Osprey Stratos 36 Backpack
Osprey Stratos 36
I’ve had this pack the longest out of all my packs and it’s my favorite activity pack. It’s by far the most comfortable. Leagues more comfortable than my Gregory Zulu 40. The ware and tare has been great. It’s been all over the country and it still looks great. I tend to use it more for hikes and day trips as opposed to climbing gear and international travel however.
