Climbing through School
Indoor and outdoor rock climbing is a passion Crystal began pursuing in graduate school.
Crystal enjoys the problem-solving and creative aspects of the sport, as well as its camaraderie and spirit of self-challenge. She has climbed outdoors in Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, California, Hawaii, Washington, and Massachusetts.
The 2020 Olympics in Tokyo will be the first ever to feature climbing as a sport.
Crystal hopes to be there (as a spectator, not a competitor).
