Prolific trad climbing pioneer who's climbed E8 ground up and introduced the grade of E9 with his ascent of Indian Face in 1986. He isn't exactly a shabby sport climber either, climbing 8b+ and 8a in his signature no hand style.
Maybe he's brutally strong? Maybe the Power Fro holds his secrets? Either way, it's working, he's climbed 8th grade boulders up to 8A+/B (Big Dragon, Fontainebleau) and has eyes on more classic lines.
The Young Crusher
Potentially the naturally strongest and most intuitive mover I've seen. He's climbed multiple 8th grade boulders up to 8A+, won comps and climbed 8a as his first ever sport climb, in a session as well!
Watching him fly up a 8B+ board climb at the end of a session, then repeat it for video, is one of the most impressive feats of climbing I've witnessed
The Younger Crusher
A familiar face on the UK youth climbing comp circuit, winning the 2022 All Nations Bouldering Series and English Roped Climbing Championships. There's more to come, with hopes to make an impression in international competition and a long wishlist of rock routes.
The Sketchy Headpointer
If the weather allows, the perma-psyched Will can be found outside boning down on a crimp or crimping a sloper. He mixes it up between the disciplines but always comes back to headpointing scary trad routes. He's climbed E8 and done E7 first ascents.
In the relatively small and young climbing scene of south India, Aravind is one of very few climbers developing hard single pitch trad climbs. There's a lot of rock and many lower level multipitches up impressive granite domes but Aravind seeks out new challenges on steep cracks.
