PCi Pro Clinic


Next month, what was once a hope and desire, will come true. Ever since I learned of the organization PCi (Professional Climbers International) I had hoped and requested that they would put on a clinic in my neck of the woods. Well, Midwest Climbing Academy has made it happen.

And its official… I invested my birthday cash and will be learning directly from 3 of the best climbers and trainers in this sport I love. World Cup Boulder Alex Puccio, hometown hero and outdoor ‘rockstar’ Alex Johnson, and hardman all-discipline climber and PCi founder Kevin Jorgeson will be sharing from the wealth of their knowledge.  I opted for the more general, efficiency and effectiveness clinic rather than the more specific competition style clinic.


Look for an update soon to see how it went.

It has been a little while since I last posted, and I don’t have a ton of time to write any REAL content now.  So, this will just be a quick update post.  What’s been going on recently and what to look forward to.

~ I picked up another climbing hold line to review.  Been setting and climbing on them.
~ I picked up a freelance client to design their Homewall.  Design phase is done and it will be built next month.

Look Forward:
~ Keep an eye out for a post next week about an event I am honored to be a part of.  Hint:  it involves climbing, people, and real life
~ Review coming for the above mentioned up-and-coming Climbing Hold company from a Homewall perspective.
~ I’m working on a Beginners Guide.  Its proving to be quite extensive.
~ A video update of how my modified Mangrove Tree is working.
~ Interviews with fellow “Real Climbers”

Thanks for hanging with me.  Please comment below with any topics you would like covered.
