For the last couple years I've been saving and preparing to take part in my own trip across the country that's going to last about a year and a half. Climbing has really made a huge change in my life mentally and physically. I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder when I turned 19 along with severe anxiety. I thought my life would come to a halt because of this and I wouldn't be able to complete my goals. Since then I've learned to overcome these obstacles and this trip plays a big part in being an example and inspiration to others that suffer too so they can see they don't have to feel hindered by their disability.

I'm still working on an itinerary. I will be taking off in April. This trip will be mostly done solo with my dog not including the climbers I'll meet up with in different areas. You can read more about my journey and preparation in my blog, and show support through my go fund me or by checking out my shop.
