Things I Know To Be True: Sienna Kopf on Success, Sprinkles, and Rest Days

Sienna “Cece” Kopf kicks off a new series, Thinks I Know To Be True, where top climbers answer big questions. Kopf competed on Team USA in 2019 for all three disciplines. She recently placed 19th in the first Salt Lake City Bouldering World Cup. A Salt Lake resident, Kopf works as a software engineer.

 

 

If I could talk to my 10-year-old self, I would tell her that as long as I believe in myself, those big goals are possible!

 

Giving it your all is the best feeling in the world, especially if that effort results in something!

Clipping the chains… well I need more endurance to do that!

 

Rest days are for swimming in freezing cold water! Recovery baby!

 

Failing hard is motivating!!!

 

My bedroom isn’t mine, it’s Lola’s. (Lola is my friends dog)

 

Junk food, as long as it’s either homemade treats or zero-sugar anything from the grocery store, I love it!!

 

If I couldn’t climb anymore, I would become a cat lady.

 

The hardest lesson in the world is learning that success takes sacrifice, and lots of it.

The world feels really big when I have to walk anywhere. Roller-blading makes it better!

 

When I’m in the zone, I think about absolutely nothing. I can’t remember anything about some of my best climbing moments!

 

People are surprised to learn that I have bad days! Crying in the gym or in front of my computer is certainly a semi-regular occurrence, and that’s O.K.

 

Three things I would give up if I could climb a grade harder are basically anything EXCEPT sprinkles/sprinkle pancakes.
