Claire Meyer

Class of 2024

Hometown: Bozeman, MT

All-time highlight so far: My highlight here at WCC definitely has to be the people I have had the pleasure of meeting and befriending. The community here attracted me to this college in the first place, and it has successfully kept me here and provided so many opportunities for growth.

Favorite outdoor trip memory:  Another thing I love about WCC is the outdoor program. Last spring, I was on a climb that was definitely out of my league: an 11c. After struggling with the crux several times, I failed to clip the third bolt and I swung towards the ground. My belayer acted fast and just barely saved me from a ground fall. This is my favorite outdoor trip memory firstly because it was absolutely thrilling, and secondly because it taught me a valuable lesson about how much I as a climber actually put in my belayer.
