About Me: The one thing you should know about me is, I like talking about fishing more.
Hometown: Des Moines, Iowa
Climbing Since: Crimping since 2002
Favorite Type of Climbing: Low ball bouldering, all joking aside, I’m talking real low.
Favorite Climbing Area: I do enjoy the boulders of Devils Lake, WI- the crew out there is constantly establishing and sharing new climbs.
What I love about climbing: Finding new and/or trying out new areas.
Other Interests: Besides fishing I am also interested in climbing short rocks.
Interesting Facts: I often tell many very uninteresting stories.
About Me: Probably outside or upside down, Jianna is a believer in the yoga mat as a laboratory: a place to explore and learn. Yoga and movement classes with Jianna pull from many movement modalities and aim to bridge the gap between traditional yoga asana and modern movement science. Most interested in things outside, she is an adventure partner, off the grid enthusiast, rookie slackliner, and climber.

What I love about climbing: The challenge against yourself – it’s so easy to see growth and improvement!

Interesting Facts: Tom’s Diner by Suzanne Vega & DNA is my favorite song. Still unsure why, but I’ve got fond memories attached to it!
About Me: Born and raised in the Twin Cities. I have three kids that make every aspect of my life fuller and more meaningful. I grew up spending a lot of time out west and upon experiencing real mountains, was forever altered. There are a lot of meaningful ways to experience true wilderness but climbing is by far one of my favorites, fishing is another.
