Who are you and how did you get to Brooklyn?
My name is Clara. I guess happenstance brought me Brooklyn, and trains, planes, and automobiles keep bringing me back.
What keeps your hours occupied?
Most of my time I spend working. I know it sounds quite anticlimactic for a young person to work constantly, but it gives me the freedom and the fire to pursue some awesome adventures.
How did you start climbing?
I am newbie when it comes to rock climbing. Since a young age I was always climbing things, always preferred to be on top of mountains instead of looking up at them. So it’s no wonder I finally found myself in a rock climbing gym a few months ago.
How has climbing impacted your life?
I have been discovering this whole community of tight knit climbers through friends and strangers. Everyone seems thrilled to find a newbie. I never expected it to be so inviting and connected.
What are your current projects, on and off the wall?
The wall is always and forever a project, but off the wall it’s just getting to more places, discovering more beauty in the world.
Say hi to Clara next time you’re at BKB! , and stay tuned for more Community Spotlights.
