“Hi, I’m Becca! I’m a coach and route-setter, and I’ve worked at Climb Iowa off and on since 2013. I love sharing the joy of climbing with people – this community is a pretty rad one. Getting to problem solve and express myself are probably my two favorite aspects of the sport, and my secret fave move is standing/walking on dual-tex holds”
Staff | grimes gym director
Carmen started climbing at the University of Northern Iowa in 2016. Their goal for this Climb Iowa Meetup is to create a welcoming environment for women, non-binary climbers, and allies. Their current goal is to become more comfortable with lead climbing in hopes of being able to lead outdoors.
