“My passion for bouldering began 13 years
ago due to the community of people,
beautiful climbing locations, and the
challenges it teaches you to overcome”
“...the adventure originals for me are the amazing everyday people that I meet in the mountains when I’m climbing.”
History of Kristen’s Adventure Bouldering has been a passion of Kristen’s for the past thirteen years. Each aspect of the sport has resonated deeply within her. From the amazing community of people that surround the sport, to the beautiful locations around the world, to the physical and mental challenges it taught her to overcome.

Travel Essentials
Tips, Advices, Inspiration: All the World’s an Adventurer 1. Favorite season? Fall: The cool crisp air and the beautiful shades of orange in the leaves—it’s also the start of climbing season. 2. Favorite adventures & sports? Bouldering: My passion began 13 years ago due to the community of people, beautiful climbing locations, and the challenges it teaches you to overcome. 3. Favorite Adventure Venues? I climb about 4 or 5 days a week. During the weekdays after work, I’ll climb indoors at the local climbing gym. On weekends, I’ll go climbing outside somewhere depending on the weather. 4. How do you prepare for these sports? I do some training workouts before I go climbing outside involving finger strength and other various exercises. When preparing to pack on these trips, I always check the weather first and then base my preparation on that. 5. What’s in the pack for longer adventures? Since the majority of climbing locations are in the mountains, I usually can expect the temperature to drop drastically at night. Because of this, I’ll have to pack for every temperature possibility. 6. Biggest concerns for clothing on these adventures? I try to be as minimal as possible, which usually means that I’ll be wearing the same clothes for several days. It’s important to me that they don’t start smelling too quickly! Also that the clothes are versatile enough to go to a brewery afterwards.
“Every year is always a peak adventure year when you are rock climbing!”

7. Have you reached your peak? Every year is always a peak adventure year when you are rock climbing! 8. If you could relive one adventure beginning to end? My trip to Kentucky last year to sport climb in the Red River Gorge. Aside from being with seven of my amazing, hilarious friends on the trip, I don’t usually sport climb so it was very mentally challenging for me. I conquered so many fears and even took a 30 ft whipper into midair after missing a clip. 9. Bucket list trip? I just went on my bucket list trip to climb in Switzerland last week! Next on my list might be Thailand to go sport climbing. 10. Who defines adventure for you? I can’t specifically name one person, but the adventure originals for me are the amazing everyday people that I meet in the mountains when I’m climbing.
They are the people who live and breathe the climbing lifestyle and spirit. Some are inspiring because they have quit their jobs for a life on the road, with uncertainty of where their next paycheck will come from, but in pursuit of following their passion for climbing. Others are weekend warriors, who don’t let their 9-5 desk jobs stop them from climbing every free moment they get. Or they are new moms or dads, determined to be good parents and still train and climb as hard as they did before they had families. It’s all incredibly inspiring.
