Hi, I’m Lauren Abernathy and I write Senderellastory.com to help people get better at climbing and maximize their time climbing outdoors. I started Senderellastory.com in 2018 to provide useful information to other busy individuals on how to effectively and intelligently train for rock climbing.

I have been climbing for four years, picking it up in my college climbing gym at the age of 19. About two years in, I decided that my slow progress through the grades was not satisfying enough. With that, I began formally training.

Since starting to train I have taken my hardest redpoint from 5.10 to 5.12a —my progress averaging about 3 letter grades per year. I truly believe that following a structured training program can significantly impacted your capacity to improve as a climber, especially if you operating on a time budget like I am.

When I am not climbing, you can find me working at my full-time corporate job in New York/New Jersey, skiing, or intaking as much information as I can to make myself and you, a better climber.

If you want to learn more about my story, you can read about it here.
