Climbing with Erinn

The 2018-2019 Canadian competition season is underway and I’m in my last year as a Junior. Boulders first and lead in the spring. A big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me on this ride, prAna, Scarpa, Les Agence Stephane Morin Sports in Montreal and The Outfitters in St John’s.

Just completed the opening round of Tour de Bloc National Bouldering Series at Seven bays Bouldering in Halifax, winning a first place in Youth (U19). It was a Atlantic regional qualifier for CEC national Championships so I’ve qualified for Youth Boulder Nationals and Open Boulder national in the new year.  …stay tuned!!

THANKS!! ... Erinn  
——————————–

I started rock climbing at Wallnuts Climbing Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland when I was 10 years old. Two years later I was on the Alpine Club of Canada Newfoundland junior climbing team and in a competitive training regime. By 15 I had competed in a dozen competitions in Newfoundland, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Quebec. In nationally sanctioned events I compete in the CEC/IFSC age classes and have won competitions in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Quebec. In 2017 I went to my first national championship event. I have been to two National Youth Bouldering Championships and qualified for two national youth Lead and Speed championships.  I have also competed in Open class at Tour de Bloc and in Newfoundland competitions  …even winning sometimes!  I have been to four FQME Coupe Quebec provincial championships so far.

I love to compete in the gym but I’m also a member of the Alpine Club of Canada and FQME (Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l’escalade) and love climbing outdoors and with the great bouldering, trad, sport and ice climbing offered around my home province of Newfoundland and Labrador. …it’s an ongoing adventure. You can follow along on FaceBook and Instagram,,and TWITTER!
