Description Transcript (17 pages) of interview by Matt Driscoll with Yvette Young on 28 February 2010
Abstract Yvette (b. 1971) was born in Norway, Maine, and went to college at BYU after being raised Mormon. She started climbing at the Rock Garden Climbing Gym in Provo, Utah, in 1994 and thinks that climbing is the reason she stayed in Utah. She compares climbing to dance in the area of strength and technique, but says that people are much stronger now than when she first started. Yvette thinks that climbing was a little more clique-ish when she started. It was harder to be accepted then. She also thinks that climbers tend to be more short-focused now (like with bouldering). When she first started, climbers would have projects that they'd work on for weeks or months. She does mostly sport climbing and thinks Utah is special because you can pretty much climb year-round with a vast variety of rock. Her favorite climbs are mostly in St. George. Interview is part of the Outdoor Recreation Oral History Project. Interviewer: Matt Driscoll
