Emily Cole

Avid sport climber, founding member of Crux Crush

Emily grew up in the Shawangunk Mountains and learned to sport climb in the Northeastern US, fully entering the world of climbing as a founding member of Crux Crush, a female-focused climbing blog. She's a sport climber at heart, and one of those Chicago residents who will make the 7 hour drive to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky on any free weekend she has. Some of her favorite climbs are Flying Monkeys (7b+) and The Return of Chris Snyder (7a).
