Madeline Farmer began climbing when she was 14 years old at a local climbing gym in Pontiac, Michigan. Her climbing adventures started in the USA Climbing Competition Circuit, but soon ventured outside to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. She has traveled all over the country to climb in different areas outside and also compete in competitions. After making the move to California in the summer of 2016 her focus changed from sport climbing to trad climbing in Yosemite and other areas around California. She has high aspirations to free El Capitan this spring along with other Yosemite Valley routes and High Sierra climbs.
