Stefan posted this sweet video and post about fellow Team ABC Athlete Matt Lubar.
“Matt Lubar is a 17 year old crusher from Boulder, Colorado who has recently been killing it on plastic, and on the rocks. Matt has been placing in the top 4 of the last adult and youth comps he has attended. On the rock, Matt just returned from a successful week long trip to Hueco Tanks with his climbing team, Team ABC. There he was able to send many v10 and v11 boulders with little work! Only the future can tell what is in store for this up and crusher.”
Nice climbing Matt!!!
We also added some new pictures and info to Matt’s Team ABC profile. Check it out! – Matt Lubar Team ABC Boulder

The Red River Gorge is one of the best sport climbing areas in America. This Spring Break Coach Obe and Coach Adam will be heading up the Elite Team Trip to the Red. The trip will allow the kids to get on some high quality sport climbing just before the start of USAC Rope Climbing Season. The Red is the perfect place to train and establish a strong foundation for the rest of the season.
Spring Break Road Trip to the Red River Gorge!
March 23th-31st, 2013
Join us for a week of sport climbing at one of the greatest climbing areas in America, the Red River Gorge!
Team ABC will be taking a trip to this sandstone climbing mecca for the last week of March 2013. We encourage kids to come on their own or with their parents.
Cost per client: $850
What is included in the cost?
- Breakfast, lunch and dinner for 7 days.
- A bed at our vacation house in the Red River Gorge for 8 nights. The house is a spacious place in the woods with a large deck and property to play on.
- 7 days of guided climbing at one of the best sport climbing areas you’ll ever visit.
Parents and climbers are responsible for transportation from Boulder to the Red River Gorge in Kentucky.
The fastest way to the Red is to fly to Lexington, KY and drive a rental car down to the Red River Gorge. Coach Adam will accompany any climbers coming without their parents.
Schedule for the week
Saturday- Climbers and families fly from Denver to Lexington and drive down to the Red River Gorge.
Sunday through Saturday- climb as much amazing sandstone as we can handle and take a rest day if needed.
Sunday- drive to Lexington and fly back to Denver.
Where will we be staying?
We will be staying in a spacious vacation home in the rolling, forested hills of the Red River Gorge. Our house has a large deck, hot tub, plenty of rooms and property to play on.
