America’s Best Climbers (ABC) Pro Clinic – Regional Recap

Posted on

On Sunday, December 8th Team ABC along with La Sportiva and Adidas Outdoors hosted a pro clinic open to all youth climbers who participated in the  ABS 15 Regional  competition.  The clinic focused on reviewing the competition performance and how to overcome challenges the climbers experienced the previous day.

Over 70 athletes participated  and eight local professional climbers donated their time: Angie Payne, Kasia Pietras, Alex Puccio, Nina Williams, Courtney Woods, Jon Cardwell, Matty Hong and Paul Robinson.  We are so thankful and appreciative for their support of the event which was featured in Monday’s Boulder Daily Camera

This day would not have been possible without the support of the sponsors and the professional climbers.

Thank you for an experience that was definitely enjoyed by all. Just check out the photos!

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.
