Amanda Berezowski started comp climbing in Calgary when she was 16. She was part of the city’s junior team and climbed with top climbers nationally and internationally. She just sent the first 5.13 she ever projected and it’s a 5.13c.
A resident of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, Berezowski’s home crag is Horne Lake and that’s where she has put down Globetrotters. It’s an often-climbed 5.13 at the picturesque limestone amphitheatre that was once rated 5.13d, but if you read the comments on Sendage.com here, few agreed. Congrats to Berezowski and good luck to her and everyone heading to Nationals this weekend in Canmore.
Well, this felt good! I finally SENT Globetrotters, 13c/8a+ At the beginning of this year when I decided I would do the lead competition season…I also made the decision to start actually trying routes outside more then just what I could send in a day. (Not just bouldering like I've mainly done) This is the first 13 I've sent or worked! 😊 Sort of a nice confidence boost before nationals in 4 days! 📷 @lost.in_the.wild & thanks to @islandrockwarrior for all the belays & @elanjm1 for the send belay. @sendclimbing #sendage #noexuses #training
