“My goal (for the near future) is to represent Singapore in the 2020 Olympics should climbing be included in the Games.”
Aaron picked up climbing at the recommendation of his good childhood friend, who was into the sport at the time. What started out as a CCA in junior college quickly became more than just that; climbing turned into a lifestyle for Aaron (or perhaps an obsession would be a better term). He has since risen to become one of the top climbers in Singapore and has represented the nation in multiple international competitions since 2014. Aaron has also spent a considerable amount of time living the dirtbag climber lifestyle in the forests of France and Spain. He feels that although competitions are important to climbing in Singapore, getting on some fresh rock is more important because it is the very essence of climbing.
