I just accidentally watched a video of Drew Ruana climbing to bolt or not to be at age 13. Holy Molly, how have I not heard of this kid?! Check it out, it's on youtube.

He's like 17 or 18 now and crushing on the nationals circuit. He's also established several had as balls routes at smith including whats now the hardest route in the park.

Check out the video of him sending Scarface at age 13 as well. He is a strong climber who will push the boundaries. I look forward to seeing what he will do!

Yeah, I watched that one too. Hell, I think I watched half a dozen. Super cool kid. Seemed to climb for the love of it. Doesn't sound like he wants to be a pro. No muss, no fuss, nothing but a strong kid with no ego in sight. Super refreshing. Kinda inspiring too, since I found the style at Smith to be really difficult (I got my ass kicked).

That kid's badass.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
