Pushpeeps – VY HOANG
She may be small, but don’t be fooled by her size – Vy can climb with the best of them thanks to her technique, determination, and straight-up grit.
Climbing is always a journey of self exploration: as much about scaling your personal possibilities as it is about the tree, wall, or rock face you happen to find yourself on. So maybe that’s why a lot of the people at Push are on a voyage of discovery, seeking out the more unusual routes through life. This is Jona’s journey.
