Kyra Condie

To be successful in climbing, you have to first wonder if something is possible, then commit yourself to trying to make it possible. That’s how I approach climbing: with a positive attitude and determination.

About >

With ten vertebrae fused, Kyra is now one of the top climbers in the world.

Kyra started climbing when she was 11 years old at Vertical Endeavors in St. Paul, MN. After she fell in love with the sport of climbing, she discovered that she had severe, idiopathic scoliosis. On March 12, 2010 she had a spinal fusion surgery to correct her 70 degree curvature.

As a lifelong animal lover, Kyra convinced her parents to let her become a vegetarian at the age of 8. Pursuing her passion for animals, she plans to one day attend veterinary school and work as a small animal veterinarian.
