"Strangely, I got into climbing when I moved to Australia. I figured out that surfing was really hard and I wasn’t going to be good at it. I was a mountain biker and a snowboarder in Canada and when I came here, in Brisbane, it’s too hot and the mountains are like little hills so I wasn’t very excited. A friend of mine said : ‘you should come climbing with us’, so I went with them and they took me to a place called Frog Buttress which was crack climbing. I found it really hard which I thought was exciting and I like challenging myself. So I thought, good trade-off, and I’ve climbed ever since."
