About Sydney Pham

Sydney Pham is a queer, Vietnamese American woman who loves to be outside. It’s Sydney’s goal to share with the community her passion for rock climbing and support marginalized groups in the process. She believes that everyone deserves to have a safe space to enjoy the outdoors, and that special attention should be paid to underrepresented populations to make access as equitable as possible. Sydney is stoked to send it this upcoming climbing season!

About Sydney’s Adventure

As a trad climber, Sydney will not only be placing her own protection as she climbs high in the PNW mountains, but will also practice route-finding, apply her technical knowledge of safely and sustainably building anchors, spend long days with alpine (aka VERY early…think 2am) starts for multi-pitch climbs, and safely descend the hundreds to thousands of feet she ascends.
