Watch Ontario-based Leslie Timms climb a horizontal roof problem in Moe’s Valley in Utah.

“Super Mario Land is a classic little zone just outside of Moe’s Valley proper,” said Timms.

“Habitat for Humanity offers completely horizontal climbing with rad movement and lots of pump.”

Timms is owner of On the Rocks Climbing Guides in Thornbury, Ontario. Her days off from guiding are spent climbing and developing new routes along the Niagara Escarpment.

During the Canadian winter months, Timms hits the road to chase sun and climb rocks across the U.S.

Her most memorable ascent was getting the first ascent of the most difficult traditional/mixed route at Lion’s Head called Above the Clouds 5.13b. This impressive 45-metre line climbs up steep roofs and cracks.

She’s sent Malice 5.12d, a bold traditional roof in the Grampians, Australia. And has sent the John Bachar trad test piece The Acid Crack 5.12d in Joshua Tree and Sacred Geometry a 5.13b trad at Red River Gorge.
