Though I may be a complete amateur, in my opinion, I am not without potential. So bare with me and keep checking in for new material. We can all learn new tricks.

Who am I?

Well, my name is in limbo. So, forever on this blog I will be known as Carrie Cooper, rock climber.
I enjoy a life of change and being that it is the only constant, I try to be true to the moment. Currently I am re-arranging my basement around a climbing wall that was built for me while I was pregnant. (That's Flagstaff for you.) From that little hint, I have a daughter named Ava and she's 14 months old and she's busier than I am. But back to me.
I have rock climbing to thank for taking me to places I never thought I'd go to and for finding people I'm lucky to have ever met. Even though climbing has been my focus for the past 5 years, I have learned something far greater than any climb I ever actually summited: You can never under-estimate the timeliness of opportunity and the generosity of strangers. My life is varied and rich and now you can be there with me.
