Connecting the Climbing Community

When we connect with another climber, it is much more than having someone spot you on your latest project or the chants of encouragement from your belayer as you’re 15 feet above your last piece of gear. Connecting is also about the areas where we climb, and those organizations we partner with to help improve those areas.

About Anjani

I began working on friends and yoga colleagues in 2009. I was nontraditionally taught by a massage therapist who instructed at a local massage school. It wasn't until 2017 that I went to school and received my massage license in 2018.

Over the years I've worked with a wide variety of people; clients from 11-85 years old, pro – novice athletes, people suffering with acute or chronic injuries, to clients that just wanted to feel relaxed. And though I have clients who prefer relaxation massage, the majority of my clients come with a need for a therapeutic / sports therapy approach. Because I'm a climber, I understand the physical demands climbing puts upon a body which thereby yields a deeper understanding of how to treat a climber. That coupled with a variety of techniques, tools, anatomical knowledge, a detailed medical history, visual assessment, and most importantly caring, allows me to create a personalized plan to achieve my client's goals.

When not working or learning more about massage, I love training and climbing outside, gardening, dancing, working with clay, making micro macrame jewelry, and spending time with my family and friends.

New Belgium Brewing

New Belgium Brewing helps us keep The Bivy stocked with craft brews, seltzers, and cider. They also throw down for events like our anniversary party and comps like the Battleship Bounty and Throne Of The Stone. We couldn't be more excited.

About New Belgium Brewing

The co-founders built New Belgium Brewing Company on core values and beliefs that continue today. Before Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch ever sold a bottle of beer, they hiked into Rocky Mountain National Park with a jug of home brew in one hand and a pen and pad in the other. Together, they wrote down what they wanted to instill into this business dream of theirs.

New Belgium Brewing Purpose Statement: "To manifest our love and talent by crafting our customers' favorite brands and proving business can be a force for good."
