Weldon’s first V10 was back in 2010 in Squamish when she ticked Worm World Cave Low in the Grand Wall Boulders.
She has sent at least six V9s, including Bob’s Liquor Mart on Big Rock near Calgary and Sesame Street in Squamish.
On the rope, Weldon has climbed five 5.14a, including Eulogy at Maple Canyon, Flying Ant at Acephale and Tom et je ris in Verdon.
Weldon, 29, grew up in a family of climbers and started climbing at a young age. Based in Calgary, her home crags included the steep and difficult Acephale. Her first 5.13 was at age 15.
She’s made first ascents in countries such as Morocco and Greenland and was a seven-time Canadian Youth National Champion and three-time Canadian Open Bouldering Champion.
