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:
My name is Amanda (she/her). I am almost 30 years old and am a boulderer, living in Bishop, CA.
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!
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.

Until next week!
