Carly is a high-level climber who is passionate about her sport. Guiding and personal climbing have taken her all over the world, from rock to ice to snow, and she enjoys all these various facets of climbing. Carly has been climbing since 2007 and is based in Fort Collins, Colorado.

She did her Undergraduate studies in Boulder, Colorado, where she finished her degree between working trips to India and Nepal. The last expedition she guided was on Denali in 2018. Not long after this trip, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She threw herself back into rock climbing and found she needed more specific guidance on how to train herself as someone with a chronic disease.

Training for climbing has since impacted her life tremendously, both as an athlete and as someone with Multiple Sclerosis. Working under Steve Bechtel and the Climb Strong team has given her the opportunity to keep learning, to keep growing- as a coach and as a climber.

Carly's own successes with training have influenced her to share her knowledge with others, and to encourage people: no matter what their body’s limitations are - there is always a way forward.

  • Performance Climbing Coach (PCC) Certificate
