Growing up in Ohio, Anna Pfaff didn’t get a lot of exposure to the mountains. It wasn’t until she left to study nursing in Denver that she roped up for the first time, and it didn’t take long for her to catch the bug. Ever since then, she has spent most of her days travelling the world in search of big walls and remote alpine objectives the quench her thirst for adventure. From the Himalaya, to the Andes, to Newfoundland, Anna is in her zone when tackling mixed climbing routes in the furthest reaches of the backcountry.
