Profile of a Dirtbag: Sara Evensen
As a kid I was constantly climbing trees, and when I broke my arm from falling, I continued to climb with the cast.  I haven’t parted from my childish ways much—I’ve just replaced trees with rock.  I try to keep this in mind when I’m climbing, to never take myself too seriously.  Most recently, I was climbing in Bornholm, Denmark, but soon I’m headed to boulder in Helsinki.  Although I’m from California, I spend every summer visiting family in Sweden, and take the opportunity to climb in Scandinavia.  Next year I’ll be going to MIT, and my goal for the season is to explore as much east coast climbing as possible.
