Lillian is passionate about using rock climbing as a platform to expand the climbing community, with programs for adaptive climbers, climbers with Parkinsons, and at-risk youth, in addition to hosting classes, events, and competitions that support high level and competitive climbers. Lillian has been climbing for over 20 years and enjoys traveling the world climbing.
