Lauren discovered climbing in her 20’s when she was under-employed and needed something to do. A handful of years later she’s traveled all over the world to climb, finding the most inspiration in the southwest desert. Her ideal climbing day involves coffee, sun, more coffee, and then lots of pitches and getting ridiculously pumped (having a good partner and laughing a lot goes without saying).
Lauren prides herself on being able to hold down a full time job as a market analyst, while having redpointed 13+ sport and bouldered v10.
