Erin is an extremely focussed athlete and currently her energy is targeted on the sport of bouldering. She grew up a gymnast, lived and breathed creative movement, and has always known she would be a lifelong athlete. In 2012 at the age of 26, Erin stumbled into the climbing gym and she instantly realized she had found her lifelong sport. Erin boulders because the sport demands so many physical and mental challenges: gymnastic, dynamic movement alongside balance and precision, mental fortitude, perseverance in the face of 99% failure, understanding of specific technical subtleties, past-present-future awareness in breath, spirit, and movement.

Jon Jugenheimer
Favorite Product: Mike’s Mix Tangerine Cream
Based in Madison WI, I am foremost a climber. I enjoy most forms of climbing Rock, Ice and Alpinism, but not Bouldering-as it is just too hard. I first started rock climbing at Devils Lake in High school, although didn’t fall in love with the sport until I went ice climbing for my first time, somewhere around 2002. I made it up 15 feet of what I thought was extremely hard ice at the time, came back down and was so pumped I couldn’t untie my knot and was hooked for life. The very next day, I bought all my own ice gear and my life changed.
