About Me: I started climbing my senior year of high school and never stopped. The gym where I started climbing was in the middle of a mall and was run by volunteers. This gym was where my passion for the sport and the community first began. The gym no longer exists but it will forever be one of my favorite places to climb. After two years as Manager at that gym, I took a job at Vertical Endeavors and moved to Minneapolis/Saint Paul. Since then I have been dedicated to expanding my climbing skills and knowledge, and have continued to share my passion with others.
Hometown: Grand Forks, ND
Climbing Since: 2009
Favorite Type of Climbing: I can honestly say I love all types.
Favorite Climbing Area: Anywhere with my friends.
What I love about climbing: I love the community, the sense of accomplishment and the mental battle of climbing. The community is so welcoming and loves to share their passion for the sport with others. I can honestly say the climbing community is one of a kind.
Other interests: Other outdoor adventures, hiking biking, camping, etc
Interesting Facts: All swans in England belong to the Queen, Polar Bears are left handed, and I am a Gryffindor.
About Me: I got bitten by the bug when I took an “Intro to Climbing” class in college and continued to dabble in the sport off and on. Even after moving across the country, I somehow found that the climbing gym was the center of my social life. When I moved back to the US after teaching English overseas, I got involved at VE and it’s been really rewarding getting to know the climbing community here.
Hometown: Marinette, WI
Climbing Since: first exposure was 2012
Favorite Type of Climbing: ideally, not slab
Favorite Climbing Area: Red Rock Canyon has been super memorable, if a little slabby.
What I love about climbing: it’s sooooooo good for my brain. It’s one of the best tools I’ve found to grow and be challenged as a human. The friendships and the community that it creates. It’s also a good excuse to travel.
Other Interests: music
Interesting Facts: I was into avocado toast before it was cool
After establishing a regular and consistent yoga practice, the bright and supportive twin cities yoga community inspired Lindsay to begin to pursue her initial Yoga Teacher certification. With a history of climbing, hiking, cycling, and running, yoga not only served as a great cross-training system to help keep her body healthy and less prone to injury, but also provided a space to tap into some of the more overlooked areas of well-being, within the context of mental and emotional health. After completing her 200-hour training, Lindsay has gone on to obtain multiple additional certifications, including those in Restorative Yoga, Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurvedic Massage, Prenatal Yoga, and Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Lindsay’s currently enrolled in the Yoga Medicine 500 hour teaching training program, using the context of yoga to marry both Eastern and Western approaches to Medicine and wellness, while working to bridge the gap between yoga educators and medical practitioners. Arriving at Vertical Endeavors and taking on the role as Yoga Program Manager, Lindsay’s eager and enthusiastic about having the opportunity to curate a program that adjoins the more classical elements of yoga with modern science and innovation, creating content and programming that’s intelligent, current, creative, and accessible.
