El Potrero Chico
Pastas with a lot of cheese
My name is Zoé, I am 27 years old, but my friends call me Big Z because I'm small and do big things. I have been climbing since 2016, and I haven't stopped since.
I started with indoor bouldering but fell in love quite fast with the rock, the real one. About a year and a half after my first climb, I went to El Potrero Chico in Mexico for a month with two of my friends and fell quite hard with the lifestyle of living on the road surrounded by climbers. After that, I travelled around USA, Canada and Europe, taking jobs in-between trips like building climbing gyms and rope access contracts to live every climber's dream: make the best of every type of rock possible!
Climbing has been a big part of my life in the past years, and I realized how rewarding this lifestyle can be. I am truly grateful to be where I am and who I became through it. It's easy to do big things if you follow your heart and do what you love.
Climbing is not just a physical activity but also a mental one. I tackle new challenges, push my boundaries, and reach new heights. I think I already achieved so much, and I'm excited about upcoming mountain climbing adventures.
My go-to place is definitely The Red River Gorges. It has been my second home for the past three years. I love this place and think the climbing community there is the best! I recommend this place if you'd like to push your limits and tick new grades.
