Hi! I’m Favia Dubyk. I’m a rock climber, animal-lover, and physician.

I spent most of my childhood below the Mason-Dixon line before moving to the Northeast and Midwest to pursue my education. I currently reside in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my husband, dog, and five cats. In addition to climbing, I love photography, video games (Call of Duty), and travel.

While in medical school in Cleveland, Ohio, I discovered my passion for climbing, particularly bouldering. I spent a majority of my free time traveling hours away to West Virginia to boulder. After graduating, I decided that I needed to live closer to rocks. My husband and I packed up our fur-family and I moved to Albuquerque, where I could continue my medical career and climb to my heart’s content.   I started this site so I could share all the wonderful (and not so wonderful) climbs that I’ve found.
