This week we’re showcasing a film by Luke Humphrey on Audrey Sniezek —an accomplished climber with over 20 years of experience in the sport. Audrey has sport and bouldering ascents of 5.14b and V9 under her belt, but that’s only a portion of her story. Audrey also leads a busy life as a software engineer, which means she’s had to learn to be creative with her schedule to maintain her commitment to her climbing. Watch how Audrey has managed to pair her intense dedication to the sport with a fast-pace career in the corporate world.

… Finding the right work-life balance to achieve my climbing potential, while holding down a demanding corporate job—it takes incredible focus, determination, and a lot of sacrifice.
