Hi everyone ☺ My name is Sophie Buitendyk. I am a competitive Rock Climber and train with the Climb Base5 team. Last year was the first year I participated at the Squamish rampage. I didn’t have a lot of experience in outdoor climbing, so I wasn’t sure if I should go. Shortly after arriving though, I was very glad I did because I got to meet an awesome bunch of people who all share the same passion as me. The Squamish rampage gave me the opportunity to exchange beta as well as try new boulders. The atmosphere at the Squamish rampage is absolutely great, with everyone encouraging and helping each other out. I definitely plan on being part of this year’s rampage and the next ones to come since it’s an amazing experience I don’t want to miss out on!!!
