Ali has lived in various places but originally came out to the Rocky Mountains in 2007. Her love of the outdoors started young, hiking and scrambling up mountains as a little kid. Introduced to rock climbing in college, Ali has climbed all over the US and has a passion for all types of climbing, especially climbs that take her up high in remote beautiful places. Living in various mountain towns, Ali has worked as a backpacking guide, llama packing guide, ski instructor, single pitch instructor, horse trainer, college professor, and designer – sometimes all at once! Ali values sharing outdoor experiences and skills with people new to the world of rock climbing and spreading her passion for the natural environment.
