How did you start climbing?
Austin: This last summer, my mom signed me up for a week long camp at Edgeworks.

Why do you climb at Edgeworks?
Austin: I climb at Edgeworks because the staff is very friendly and they really encourage me to get better. I also love that Edgeworks is only 10 minutes from my house so it’s super easy to come all the time.

Where is your favorite place to climb outside?
Austin: The only time I have climbed outside was at Edgeworks summer camp and it was a very awesome experience. I also love to climb all the trees in my neighborhood.

What do you do when you’re not climbing?
Austin: When I am not climbing, I am doing homework and playing with my border collie, Tux. I also play the piano and the saxophone. Outside activities I love to do are bike riding, skiing, and skateboarding.

What are some interesting facts you’d like to share with the Edgeworks community?
Austin: If you quit climbing, you quit life. If you can campus your chimney with Santa’s toy bag tied to your feet, he’ll bring you free climbing shoes for life.
