Angela Payne

WHERE SHE CALLS HOME: Boulder, CO

HER STORY: In the flatlands of Cincinnati, Ohio, Angie Payne lucked into finding the sport of climbing at a young age. This interest eventually lead her to Boulder, where she attended the University of Colorado and became a National Champion boulderer and the first woman to climb a V13 boulder problem. Climbing in the mountains of Colorado and many other beautiful places around the world helped Angie develop a greater appreciation of nature and a love of capturing its beauty in photos. When Angie isn’t enjoying the company of the amazing creature that is her cat Rufus, she splits her time between climbing and photography.
