Hi, I’m Karin!

Climbing Base Camp Expedition

Karin (she/her/hers, and it is pronounced car-een) is returning to GRP a little bit this summer to help facilitate climbing programs! Originally from the piedmont, she has enjoyed living in the mountains of western NC since 2013. She got into rock climbing and whitewater kayaking during her time at Appalachian State University where she studied biology. Since Karin was last at GRP in 2019, she raft guided in Oregon, lived/worked/paddled in New Zealand, went back to school to become an EMT, and moved to Asheville. She really hopes to hear whippoorwills (a type of bird) and see blue ghosts (a type of glowing insect) again at camp this summer!
