Aly Alvarez

AlyVertex has been one of the most influential places in my life. I have been climbing here for the better part of a decade, and it’s still my favorite spot. Climbing is a catalyst for creating strong communities, and it has been SO RAD being a part of it! I don’t know where I would be without this sport or this amazing community. Working with kids has humbled me in so many ways, and the fact that I have been able to give them the confidence and body awareness to push through, has been extremely rewarding. There is no other activity that has given me the physical and mental strength to conquer my fears and my goals, and being able to share this with others has uplifted and inspired me even more.
