In 2009, Trish Matheny left her home state of Oklahoma to follow her heart to the Rocky Mountains and never looked back. Overwhelmed by her passion for adventure and exploration, she began traversing the mountain ranges surrounding her new home, Teton Valley, Idaho on her splitboard and learned the importance of dialing in your gear, especially when you carry it all on your back. Everything got turned upside down when she discovered rock climbing in 2016, and now she spends her time chasing warm weather and dry rock near Bishop, California. When she’s not out climbing, she enjoys trail running, yoga, and cooking with friends.
