AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor, Climbing Center & Youth Programs Manager, USAC Level 1 Route Setter, SumMAT Camp Director
Cate joined the Petra Cliffs team in October 2017 as a Mini Monkeys coach, and since then has become involved in many aspects of Petra Cliffs. She coordinates Youth and Indoor programming, including indoor climbing groups, after-school programs, climbing teams, and SumMAT Camp. She also is one of the route setters at Petra, putting up crimpy, delicate routes. She enjoys the challenge of setting climbs for both youth and adult climbers. While occasionally found on the end of a rope, her passion is bouldering. Whether pebble wrestling in Smuggler's Notch, VT, or Joe's Valley, UT, all boulders are great boulders! Raised in Connecticut, she has a love for New England wild places. Her greatest passion is teaching kids in any capacity, whether about climbing, food, or farming. When she's not climbing, she can be found growing vegetables, hiking, or drinking tea.
