It's been quite a season for the Front Climbing Team. Considering the fact that this is our first season competing on the ropes, the team has done an awesome job holding their own against competition that specializes in difficulty. It's been an enriching experience working with the kids in the team. A truly wonderful bunch who are dedicated, and joyful. Real gems. The Youth Divisionals will be held at Momentum gym this weekend and everyone's psyched about it.
The future...the SLC and Ogden Youth Climbing Teams coming together to prepare for a strong showing at the SCS Divisional Comp coming up this weekend!
Honestly, there were many doubters at the beginning saying boulderers can't rope climb. Yes, we get pumped quickly but give us time, we'll be up and running. And the kids' showing for the past comps are testament to that. And don't forget, as Tony Yaniro used to say..."If you can't do the moves, there is nothing to endure."
Update: Axel Dillman qualified for the Nationals after last weekend's Divisionals representing in his new Demons! Props to the Mad hommies for getting the shoes to him in time!

The Mad hommies just put up this commercial. I love working with these guys and it's been a real privilege to be representing a company that is driven by innovation, interaction with the community, and most importantly, a great love and respect for the outdoors. Enjoy!
