What’s your story?
I started climbing at around 12 years old with my twin brother. We would climb anything we could find.. .it started with climbing our neighbors walls and fences, then moved on to trees and hills near our home and on to the mountains of Rio de Janeiro. My goal in climbing was always to enjoy nature and get to the summit of whatever we were climbing. The views from the top always made the experience extremely rewarding. After moving to the U.S I started to focus more on the technical and physical part of climbing. I build my technique and strengths in all areas of climbing throughout my 20+ years of climbing experience and now I am able to take all of what I learned to challenging new routes of the greater ranges.
