Kendra doesn’t climb to get to the top, scare herself, find clarity, or beat the mountains. She climbs to have a good time. “I’m passionate about having fun and sharing the fun with others,” she says. “I share with others through online media, festivals, clinics, mentorships, photography, and general friendliness wherever I go.” Kendra aspires to advance the sport of ice climbing. “I believe that climbing creates a wonderful community of support, confidence, environmental stewardship, determination, and many other characteristics.” Kendra has been a competitive athlete since age 9. She has really kicked butt lately in world speed climbing competitions.
