How and when did you start climbing?

When I was four years old, I lived a few blocks away from a climbing gym. One day my parents and I decided to walk into the gym to see what was in the “tall building.” I saw the huge walls covered with holds and decided that I wanted to climb. Unfortunately, the gym required people be six years old, so on my sixth birthday I went climbing for the first time and I loved it!
