“I try to find any small things which can make me better.” Alexey says. He is always searching for new ways to get stronger. But it’s not always about comps and winning. “I touch the stone and I touch nature, it’s a good feeling. You are here and you have business here.”
After experiencing the adventure of pushing herself past her comfort zone and sending her first multi-pitch, BD Athlete Daila Ojeda decided she wanted more.
