The epitome of hard work and dedication, “BK” is a Canadian Youth and Open National Team member for both lead and bouldering. Always fighting to the last rep, Bronwen’s dedication to training is evidenced by her strength and muscle every time she pulls onto the wall. Her smile represents her love of climbing and excitement for competing at the big events. When she’s not climbing or training, Bronwen puts whatever finger strength she has left to use playing classical music on the piano.
