USA Climbing Adaptive Nationals

Adaptive Climbing National Championship

I’m excited to share the news that I scored 2nd place at USA Climbing Adaptive Nationals. This yields me a spot on team USA for the IFSC world championship September 10th-15th in Innsbruck, Austria!

I received 16100 points out of 18000. I’m super excited that I kept up with strength and skill despite nearly 6 months off and two major surgeries. (At 2017 Nationals I scored 15,800, also receiving 2nd.)
