Chris Cosser - Youth A

 

From very little I loved to climb. My parents say that I climbed before I walked. When I was 11yrs old, thanks to the encouragement of the St Johns climbing coach, and now Redpoint club coach, Brett Nicolson, I started to get actual training and took part in my first competition. I have not looked back since. Climbing sucked me in! I was selected to represent SA at the New Caledonia and the Arco World youth climbing competitions. These were the most amazing experiences! The people I met have changed my life. My favorite climbing spot is Waterval Boven. Unfortunately my school, KES, does not offer sport climbing. So my school sport is hockey and as a family we enjoy mountain biking. Something that I really love about climbing is the amazing support and encouragement that we get from our team mates and other climbers. We are like a family. Everyone enjoys in each other’s success.

I started seriously climbing in 2013 when I went to a small competition hosted at the mountain club bouldering wall, Delaney spotted my and asked if I'd like to compete in this year's Lead Nationals in Jo'burg, as one can imagine I was dumbstruck and hesitatingly said, " yeah that could be cool" and off I went, that competition I managed to take second place to Chris and was super stoked on the achievement. I think that the sports icon that has influenced me the most in the sport has got to be Fred Nicole, for his shear humbleness and chilled attitude that he brings to the sport which I think a lot of climbers are missing and that they take everything too seriously.
