Hi I am Noah,

I am eight years old and have been climbing seriously for the last four years but have been around climbing my whole life. I enjoy bouldering & sport climbing and I'm fascinated with trad climbing and the gear. I'm excited about doing more trad climbing. I enjoy the discipline and challenges that come with climbing.

I've been spending a lot of time outdoors with my family. My parents are both climbers and have introduced my sister and I to the sport. This past summer we learned about Access Issues with climbing areas and did some trail restoration with the Access Fund, American Alpine Club and Salt Lake Climbers Alliance. We also took some classes on Self Rescue and Anchors.

Some of my favorite areas to climb are… The children's circuit in Fontainbleau France. Maple Canyon, Utah. City of Rocks, Idaho. Moe's Valley, Utah and Joe's Valley, Utah. Little Cottonwood Canyon Utah is 15 minutes from my home so we spend a lot of time there. I also climb on the Momentum Climbing gym team with my sister Zoe. We compete in bouldering, sport climbing and speed competitions. I love SCARPA shoes - they're my favorite climbing shoes.
