My Story

What’s Up Climbers,

My name is Julie Ellison, and I am a true outdoor person. I have three passions in life – writing, climbing, and photography.

I started my climbing journey in Aspen. Here is a photography of me preparing for that.

When I was a child used to go to small treks with my dad, and he got me into a local rock climbing school. That spawned my interest in climbing mountains, and since then I never looked back. Also, I used to write small stories when I was in high school.

Anyway, in 2014, I got myself injured and that severely impacted my right leg. Due to this, I am not able to go for long climbing trips. I now try to teach students little tactics that can help them prepare for treks.

I started this website to share my knowledge of climbing and also to reconnect with my old love of writing. I plan to get famous climbers to share their stories on this blog.

So, yeah that’s about it but if you want to speak with me, the hit me up with an Email on julie@elevationaspen.com.

Let’s climb some mountains!
