Enormocast 240: Maiza Lima – The Long Way Home

On Episode 240 of the Enormocast, I am joined by Maiza Lima. Maiza resides, more or less, in Great Falls, Montana, but her journey to that town has been a long and arduous one. Maiza was born and grew up in a remote village in Brazil, and in her teens, joined her mother to cross the Mexican border into the US. They found their way to Seattle, Washington where they both cleaned houses relentlessly for the next ten years. After being first drawn to the night life of the big city, she finally yearned for more satisfaction from life and started exploring outdoor opportunities and then climbing. Soon, Maiza was obsessed and chose to make a life out of climbing, married a fellow climber, started working in the climbing industry and the rest, as they say, is current history.
