Quinn Brett

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.
