Natasha started pulling on plastic at WSU's Rec Center climbing wall and learned how to lead climb (thanks Joel & Brian) at the Black Cliffs during summer stints in Boise. Natasha owes a lot of who she is as a climber to the Boise climbing community and joined the BCA in the hopes to give back to the community that shaped her.
Fave climbing area: Red Rocks, Castle Rocks, The Black Cliffs
Why the BCA important to me: I think the BCA is a little underrated for how much they do for the community! We’re so lucky in Boise to have the cliffs so close to town but it takes a lot of keep them open to all for climbing. From working with land managers to spreading knowledge about climbing at the cliffs, the BCA plays an important role.
(Also, while I’m not wearing a helmet in my pic, it’s important to protect your noggin folks! Wear a helmet!!)
