Lor fell in love with climbing at a gym in Detroit, Michigan when they were twelve years old.
As a young climber, they split their time between competitive climbing and exploring sandstone crags in the southeast.
After graduating from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management, they began working in the climbing industry as a guide, route setter, and coach.
They now guide in the southwest US and work as the Training Leader for the Warrior’s Way, a mental training organization that uses climbing as a foundation for developing awareness, engaging challenges with intention, and building personal power.
Lor loves all types of climbing, but especially steep splitter cracks and desert towers.
Outside of climbing, Lor is working towards a graduate degree in Experiential Counseling.
