Paige Claassen is one of the strongest, understated climbers of her generation. For the past decade she has dispatched with some of the hardest routes in the world – and doesn’t gloat about it. What’s always struck me about Paige is her eye and desire to try meaningful climbs – beautiful, historical, stiff – they are always “king lines” in my opinion.
She recently got married to a South African (happy almost one year anniversary Paige!) so naturally I wanted to know when she was going to have kids…ha! In all seriousness though, she’s also recently started a non profit and I wanted to know what her life looks like now and how she envisions it in the future. She was kind enough to open up about all of that and more. I hope you enjoy!
