Robyn Raboutou, Team ABC Founder and Head Coach explains Alex’s natural fit to the coaching line-up.  “All of Team ABC is excited to have Alex on board. She is one of the top female climbers of this generation and her experiences as a youth climber is similar to that of the Team ABC athletes.  Her passion, talent and dedication are a perfect complement to our program.”

Alex started climbing as a teenager and quickly progressed to the top-tier of the sport. She has always sought to share her passion of climbing so coaching is a natural progression. “By coaching the up and coming rock stars of our future, I can give back to the sport I love. I can share my knowledge and experiences gained over the past 11 years with these young climbers in the hopes that it will assist them in achieving their goals and ambitions for the future,” stated Alex.

We’d like to congratulate Team ABC Elite athlete Margo Hayes on her 7th place finish at this year’s IFSC Youth World Championships!

Here are the results from Margo’s category: General result female youth B lead

Margo flashed both of her qualifiers and was tied for 2nd after semis.  As you can see, her category had a very close final, with 5 of the 8 girls falling from or moving off the same hold! That hold 26 must have been quite the crux. In the end Margo took a very proud 7th place.

Way to go Margo!!!

Here are some photos of the event:
