BIG THANK YOU!! to every one who helped get me to the Canadian Youth Bouldering Championships in Vancouver!

It was an amazing experience and I got a national ranking. Teammate Lily Dubrowski and I were the first Newfoundlanders  to qualify for a national climbing championship and represent our province. Summer is here so time to head outside on the real rocks. Competition seasons starts again in the fall!

We’re on TV! …Thanks Jeremy Eaton from CBC TV in St John’s.

Check out Lily and I on CBC Radio in St John’s!     …and on The Sports Page!

 

Erinn Locke, started rock climbing at Wallnuts Climbing Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland when she was 10 years old. A year later she was on the Alpine Club of Canada Newfoundland junior climbing team and in a competitive training regime. By 15 she had competed in a dozen competitions in Newfoundland, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Quebec. In Newfoundland she competes in the woman’s open class (19 +) always placing high against the older and more experienced climbers. In nationally sanctioned events she competes in the CEC/IFSC age classes and has won competitions in Newfoundland and Quebec. Most recently, January 2017 saw her finish 6th  at the FQME Coupe Quebec (Bouldering) provincial championships and qualify for the 2017 Canadian National Youth Bouldering Championships in Vancouver B.C.  Previously, the Youth B ( 14/15 year old category) in December 2014 at the national climbing series, Tour de Bloc, in Montreal. In March 2015 she won the Woman’s Open Division at ROCKFALL 2015, the biggest climbing competition in Newfoundland and in November 2016 1st place Woman’s Open at Bloc on The Rock, Newfoundland bouldering championships.

While Erinn loves to compete in the gym she is also a member of the Alpine Club of Canada and FQME (Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l’escalade) and has carried her love of climbing to the outdoors and the great bouldering, trad, sport and ice climbing offered around her home province of Newfoundland and Labrador. …it’s an ongoing adventure.
