We’re not really sure how much free time training for the Olympics leaves you, but we’re pretty sure it’s not a whole lot. Which makes it all the more impressive that Kyra Condie’s resume boasts a number of climbing advocacy and inclusive access accomplishments, most notably as a member of the USA Climbing board of directors. A climber and advocate from a young age, Kyra first learned about Access Fund and her local climbing organization, Minnesota Climbers Association, when she was on a youth climbing team in Minnesota. Inspired by the organizations’ missions to protect and steward climbing areas, Kyra found her advocacy passion in inclusive access to climbing, especially providing access to people who otherwise might not think they belong in the climbing community. Follow along as Peter and Kyra discuss her upbringing in Minnesota, the Olympics, and what she is most passionate about in her board role with USA Climbing. 1:43- Kyra’s intro 3:31- Climbing in Minnesota 5:49- Aspirations to be a veterinarian 7:20- Prepping, qualifying and the structure of the Olympics 14:57- Kyra's beginnings in climbing advocacy 17:15- Advocacy in SLC 21:23- Climbing festivals influence on advocacy 30:51- Sentiment among Kyra's peers on advocacy 32:29- Board role with USA Climbing 39:51- Final thoughts Kyra’s Instagram: @kyra_condie Minnesota Climbers Association:https://www.mnclimbers.org/ USA Climbing: https://usaclimbing.org/ Home Crag video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2w77nWlPC8 Salt Lake Climbers Alliance’s “Save Little Cottonwood Canyon”: https://www.saltlakeclimbers.org/lcc-udot-eis… continue reading
