The Frisco, Texas, native has been climbing for a little more than six years, and her sponsors include Adidas Outdoor, Petzl and Five Ten.

“Climbing is so much more to me than a hobby; it is my passion,” she said “I feel so lucky to have discovered it because it has done incredible things for me. I’ve learned countless valuable lessons and have had many amazing experiences through the sport. I encourage everyone who has not tried it to give it a go, because anyone can do it, and it is so much fun!”

Hosted by Sender One

The championships, hosted by Sender One and overseen by USA Climbing, featured speed climbing on a 10-meter route as well as the sport climbing event that Miller won, in which competitors were scored on how far they could get up a route of about 50 feet before falling.
