Path to the Olympics with Tom O’Halloran – a workshop designated for youth climbers
Workshop with a climber who needs no introduction!
Tom O’Halloran is one of only two climbers representing Australia in the Olympics. And he’s not a slouch outside either and has established many of Australia’s hardest routes up to grade 35! In 2016 he red-pointed ‘Baker’s Dozen’ and ‘Kitten Mittens’, both 35 (9a), becoming the first Australian climber to succeed on routes of this grade, and in 2017 climbed the legendary Grampians boulder problem, ‘Wheel of Life’ V15 (8C). Then, on his last trip to WA, he flashed one of the hardest boulders here, ‘Finding Max’, at Copper Rocks.
So, evidently, Tom knows a thing or two about climbing.
This is a session designated for youth climbers under the age of 18. It will focus on skills and tactics specific to competition climbing, with emphasis on laying foundations for the climber you want to be in 10 years times (comps/redpointing, etc). A few lesson from progressing from youth to adult climber.
Who could be more qualified to help you get competition ready than an Olympic climber.
