Szu-ting Yi was born in Taiwan and came to US to get her PhD in computer science. Szu-ting and her husband Dave Anderson had lived in the Western US, climbing, and working out of their customized van Magic for 7 years until they settled down in Las Vegas in 2019. Besides working as a climbing guide, Szu-ting is the author of four books and has completed multiple first ascents in Asia and Patagonia
I had an amazing day, Ting Ting was a great guide. I wasn't sure if I was asking too much ( I wanted to follow on multi pitch and lead on some easy single pitch sport routes) but she fulfilled all of my requests. She was also very encouraging when I questioned whether or not I could do a harder route on top rope, she seemed to know my limits better than I did.

Ting Ting was amazing - she made the experience awesome and we had a really good time. The climbing was perfect for our level of experience and the views were beautiful. Thank you so much, Ting Ting!

I've been bouldering indoors and outdoors for years, but have always felt there's a big barrier to climbing outdoors -- it just seems so risky and scary. I've gained a ton of confidence, knowledge, camaraderie, and empowerment from other women's and gender-inclusive classes for other sports, and this one with Szu-Ting Yi matched all those. Practicing all the safety checks and simply climbing outdoors all weekend took away my fear of outdoor climbing! Now, I'm so psyched to get out their with my friends, and to keep on taking women's climbing classes -- next up will be a lead climbing class. Thank you!
