My name is Rain and I live on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (Vancouver). I am a queer, non-binary, white, middle-aged immigrant to Canada.
I love being in the mountains, especially near home. My favourite type of climbing involves plenty of suffering mixed in with the fun, like starting your adventure in the middle of the night. Wearing rain pants and rock shoes at the same time. Or eating an unhealthy amount of instant mashed potatoes.
I am very passionate about making the outdoors accessible to more people. I started We Belong Outside to help change the way we think about what a climber or a mountaineer looks like.
