Climber and endurance athlete, Quinn Brett sought to ascend and traverse nooks and crannies of the world, reveling in the freedom of movement across incredible landscape. Her accomplishments are varied; first ascents, speed ascents, summit handstands, public lands advocacy, National Park technical rescuer, educator and yoga-climbing retreat owner. October 2017 she took a 100 foot fall climbing in Yosemite causing paralysis below the waist. Her drive to cover long distances over technically complex terrain continues, just a few layers deeper. Quinn still advocates for public lands and now spinal cord research through writing, speaking and as an athlete.
