Beal, Gnarly Nutrition


Blake is a coach, facilitator, and all-around passionate lady. Climbing since 2013, Blake is one of those climbers who brings so much play and lightness to her climbing and to others. Though Blake has many proud ascents in her climbing-life; some benchmark 5.13 sport routes, many classic 5.11’s in Yosemite, a handful of Fontainebleau V-Sandbags, she knows she is climbing “successfully” when she is giving 100% regardless of the outcomes. In fact, it is her robust relationship with climbing and the pursuit of life-balance that led Blake to start her private wellness and life coaching practice after a dozen years in wellness and behavioral health. She is a regular interviewee on climbing podcasts, has been featured in Climbing Magazine, and facilitated a host of impactful workshops and speaking engagements for climbers looking to up-level their sport and lives.  Her future plans include more cycles of prioritizing  climbing, work, family, travel and everything in between, including her newest endeavor, co-founding ClimbWell, a space for climbers to engage in personal and climbing development alongside life-coach-climbers and peers.
