Hi my name is Tessa.

I have been homeschooled since I was four years old.

I spend a lot of my time rock climbing which I really enjoy. I compete in quite a few of the climbing competitions in New Zealand. Most of this blog will be about my climbing experiences.

The last two competitions I did were outdoor bouldering (low level climbing without ropes) competitions at the Airstrip, Waitomo, and Baring Head, Wellington. Those competitions are part of the National Bouldering Series that runs over four weekends from February to March; the other two competitions are at Spittle Hill, Canterbury, and Jardines, Queenstown.

I plan to go to six indoor competitions this year. One of them will be in Australia. The other five are: the National Cup Series (four events) and the National Championships.
