Molly Mitchell is 22 years old and has been rock climbing for 6 years. After experimenting in bouldering and sport climbing, Molly has finally found her true passion in traditional climbing. Now, she is currently testing the limits on hard, scary trad climbs. She only began trad climbing in March 2015, and since then, she has achieved multiple groundbreaking, terrifying ascents - including a First Redpoint Ascent of “Stranded at Sea,” 5.12+ R/X (Vedauwoo, WY) , and First Ascents of “The Spoiled Moose,” 5.13- R (Boulder, CO), and “Element X,” 5.13a, X (Eldorado Canyon, CO). She is inspired by the mental aspect and fear factor in climbing and loves expressing herself through the routes she establishes. She also is a climbing coach at Team ABC Boulder, and a writer. She graduated from University of Colorado Boulder in May 2015 with a degree in Communication, minoring in Business and Creative Writing. Molly plans to travel and continue to follow her instincts when it comes to tackling new, undone, intimidating routes.
