We are having a great time at The Climbing Wall Summit this year and learning tons! It`s been excellent to see everyone in the industry. A big shout out to Micaela, Paige, and Vanessa for presenting at the summit this year! Another big shout-out to Mardi who created the first women’s lounge at the summit and hosted a women’s cocktail hour for attendees. We are very proud to share our love of climbing with all in attendance.

Climber Spotlight: Michael Molony

“I discovered climbing at a summer camp in Charleston, South Carolina. It was my favorite part of the whole trip. I pursued it in earnest in college in Wyoming, and suddenly, there was climbing everywhere. It was a rude awakening going from gym climbing to real rock. 90’s taped gym climbing all the way to Vedauwoo, which is a land of granite slabs and off width climbs. I was working for Organic Climbing and relocated to Central Pennsylvania when they moved here. I came to find out how much great climbing is on the east coast. New River Gorge, Chattanooga, The Gunks…This region has a lot to offer in terms of outdoor recreation and as a whole gets kind of forgotten sometimes. Climbing used to be such a fringe activity, but it`s become so much more accessible. Building Climb Nittany was always a dream that was discussed with other climbers but only came to fruition through 5.life. I remember one day building the gym the absolute terror of how much static electricity was in the air when we were laying the foam. We were all avoiding the metal so a footlong spark didn’t jump across and zap us. Thank you to the Climb Nittany community for the support. Thank you for showing up. Thank you for the belief and everything that you`ve done to be a part of this. We can design and build the coolest gym in the world, but if the people here didn`t show up for it, nothing good would come of it. I hope Climb Nittany helps remove more barriers to climbing for people, and that the community that’s growing here has the chance to take these experiences elsewhere, to the cliffs and boulders, and get to experience everything climbing can offer. There might only be a small fraction of people who do that, and that’s fine. I hope that awareness travels with people, that they`re good representatives of the sport, that more people get to be a part of this.”

We wish Michael well on his next endeavors!

Climber Spotlight: Nick Foster -Director of Routesetting

I got into climbing through a childhood friend. We visited the local climbing gym in Portland, Maine. I found this was something that I wanted to do with my life. I remember going up to the front desk and asking the manager what the process of setting looked like… He slid a wrench across the table and said, “Use one of these”. Much of setting is drawn from outside inspiration. Competitions are a really good testing lab to see what you can make climbers do, how to make climbers think, and interact with what you put on the wall. Setters always get questions. Do you draw it out? Do you have a computer program? For myself, I like to be very spontaneous. Use the holds that are provided and think outside the box to try to get climbers outside their comfort zones. Routesetting and climbers are in a symbiotic relationship. You can look at a boulder and know the climb is ergonomic. You can tell when they`re kind of sticking it to the climber and making them do something really uncomfortable. I have been excited to climb with this community, but now with this position, I`m able to challenge the community and stimulate the routesetters. You’re never too young or too old to get into climbing. It`s our job to be as inclusive as we can with the products that we put on the wall. We need to allow a new climber that`s never even heard of rock climbing to come through our doors and find stimulation and success and challenge seasoned climbers who know their ins and outs and want to have a good session. I encourage and invite the community to always approach the routsetters, even though naturally routesetters are a little intimidating and maybe even a little grizzly. We`re just people and climbers like yourselves. We want to know what you find exciting and what you want more of. So don`t be afraid of it. We are cooking stuff up in the kitchen and if it does or doesn`t taste good, we certainly want to know.
