About Soleil

Born in the Philippines, Soleil moved to Canada at age 9. While living in Toronto, Soleil saw pictures and read about our amazing coastal mountains. In 2012, she decided to drive from Ontario to BC, with the intention of learning a lot about mountaineering and rock climbing. She was able to gain some valuable skills and knowledge from the Alpine Club of Canada, but also from asking (way too many) questions to her perceptive colleagues at Climb On. She acknowledges that she still has a lot to learn, and loves to hear people’s rock climbing strategies or any credible insight on alpine equipment and safety.

Fun Fact

Around 2015, Soleil quit her Front End Developer job to do an All-Women’s self-guided expedition to Aconcagua in Mendoza, Argentina. They attempted the Polish Glacier route, but was only able to reach a high-point of 6000 meters. Although they didn’t reach the summit, the experience was one she and her comrades would remember for the rest of their lives.
