Mackenzie Hansen - NSW - Youth A - Lead & Boulder
I fell in love with climbing when I first went to ‘crazy climb’ in Caernarfon, north Wales. When we moved to Sydney, I started climbing at St Peters SICG. I now climb around Sydney to experience new climbs and different settings, with my two favourite boulder gyms being 9 Degrees Waterloo, and Skywood. During COVID, I started climbing more outdoors and have enjoyed climbing around Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
I really enjoy the problem-solving aspect of climbing, and the challenges it poses both mentally and physically. My favourite discipline is lead, but I have been bouldering more and more for training. I am thrilled to represent Australia at the World Youth Championships in Seoul, South Korea.
