Climber Interview: Amanda Jaramillo•
Posted on March 23 2020
Meet our climber of the week: Amanda Jaramillo. Amanda is a boulderer who has been climbing all around California for the last 8 years. Check out her beta videos on YouTube at Girl Beta! We've loved watching her crush, so we wanted to learn a little more about her climbing story:
To start, what are a few ways you identify yourself? (some examples: name, age, pronouns, type of work you do.) But really, anything you believe is important.
My name is Amanda (she/her). I am almost 30 years old and am a boulderer, living in Bishop, CA.
How did you start climbing?
I started climbing 8 years ago when I decided to check out a local climbing gym. I left the gym and went straight to REI to buy my own gear, and the rest is history!
What impact has climbing had on your life?
What are some other things you do that you find most fulfilling?

We hope you have enjoyed these sneak peeks into climbers' lives. We're on a mission to share diverse stories about rock climbing. Let's push the boundaries of who we know as climbers. Let's use our energy and passion for the outdoors to love our environment and inspire one another.
Have someone you think we should feature? Send us a message and let us know!
Until next week!
