Hannah is a 21-year-old student and climber originally from Santa Cruz, California but currently based in Olympia, Washington. She is employed at Cirque Climbing Gym in Lacey, Washington as a general all-around helpful/lovely employee and boulder problem-setter. Boulder route-setter? Bouldering route setter? She sets the boulder problems! Currently (as of recording) a senior at The Evergreen State College, Hannah is studying interdisciplinary humanities and poetry. We chat lots of climbing, a little bit of flow, and how many different things can be poetry. And guess what? She reads us one of her poems! Also, Zowie reads us a poem! Two poems are read in this episode!
