Mayan was born in NZ and spent her childhood based in NZ, but with many lengthy trips to Germany. Throughout school, she rode horses competitively and only took up rock climbing in her late teens. On leaving School she took up Extreme Skiing and climbing was put on the back burner as she traveled around the world following winters.
Mayan only seriously returned to climbing at 21 after a bad skiing accident. Since then she never looked back and now lives on the road as a professional rock climber!
