Throwback to American Guide Szu-ting Yi Talking Climbing

Yi is currently based in L.A. as a rock climbing guide

In 2014, Szu-ting Yi talked about her life as a climber and rock climbing guide for the American Mountain Guides Association. Based in L.A., she stays busy running introductory courses and guiding the classic sandstone routes in Red Rocks.

The following year, she climbed 40 desert towers in one season and she has a PhD in computer science at University of Pennsylvania.

In 2017, Yi and Dave Anderson successfully completed a north to south traverse of the Wind River Range and summited 33 peaks along the Continental Divide. Watch the video here.  Be sure to follow Yi on Instagram below for current adventures.
