Margo Hayes burst onto the international climbing scene in 2017 with her ascents of La Rambla and Biographie (both 5.15a). Here in the America, however, we’ve known of Margo’s climbing achievements and impressive work ethic for years.

I first met Margo when she was a 14-year-old sending 5.13s. Over the next five years, Margo leveraged her natural talent, coaching (Robyn Erbesfeld), family support system, and hard-work ethic to launch her arc of improvement into the stratosphere with her breakthrough ascents in 2017.

I think that one of my strengths is believing that hard work can lead to success. –Margo Hayes
