About Thomasina Pidgeon

Thomasina Pidgeon is a Canadian boulderer - one of the strongest Canadian female climbers, actually, having done over 40 boulders V11 to V12. She's also competed quite a bit, and been quite successful on national and international levels. She does this at the age of 40, all while living out of her van, which she's done since she was 19 years old, and while raising her 9 year-old daughter. 

What We Talked About

  • Van life and being a mom
  • Her training regimen designed by Steve Maisch
  • What's different in her climbing now that she's 40
  • How she trains now vs before she started competing
  • Her success on a high fat diet
