My journey to freestyle rock climbing has not been an easy one. It has not been without struggle. At a young age I experienced personal loses of close family. This left a burden on me. The weight of which led me to question the very meaning of life. Mid way through high school I started rock climbing. My first experience climbing Table Mountain brought me an indescribable sense of wonderment and joy as I reconnected with nature. Nature gradually changed me and with the focus of climbing mountains I overcame these personal difficulties of childhood. The heights of mountains elevated my spirit and renewed my sense of hope. This is a story of finding self expression through my climbing journeys though the natural landscapes of Table Mountain, Cederberg, Montagu,Thailand and Vietnam. My story aims to give you a window into my world as a freestyle rock climber.
