Also known as Helmet Girl. Julia climbs for Upper Limits (home gym of TRAGUR). She is fierce and graceful on the wall. You've never seen anyone happier to climb.
We are thrilled to have earned Julia's support for our clothing. She's said, "I love TRAGUR not only for the cool designs but because it is so clearly designed with climbers in mind. For instance, the Origin Bamboo Tank is slim fitting so it doesn’t get in your way while you crush. The Women’s Crux Rock Climbing Pants have an adjustable cinch system. This is super helpful! I’ve found that I like to have the pants come closer to my ankles while lead climbing, and have them cinched higher up and out of the way for bouldering and speed climbing. The pants also have 3 pairs of pockets! (Pockets are super rare in women’s clothing, so these may be the only athletic pants I own with pockets that can hold more than a phone)."
Zoe climbs for ROKC in Kansas City. We met her at a competition at IBEX gym. She had volunteered to belay the younger kids as they competed. We noticed how nice she was to our daughter when belaying her. We thought she might like to try one of our shirts, and from then on, we've been thrilled to be associated with her.
The only thing about Zoe that isn't cautiously reserved is her climbing. She is insanely strong and her motion is stoic. Each send is basically a clinic on route reading & constant paced movement.
She loves climbing in the Women's Crux Climbing Pants for the protection offered, and stretch that allows freedom of movement. She can cinch the length and cuff to what is most comfortable to her.
Sam Climbs with Team Texas at Summit Climbing Yoga and Fitness. We met Sam through a demo event at Summit, Plano TX. He has climbed throughout the US and in Austria, Italy, and Spain. He is extremely active on social media: @Climbing_in_the_woods. Check out his videos. When Sam is not climbing he enjoys..... We don't know, he's always climbing. ALWAYS.
Sam is happy to help you through your project or provide beta if you need it. He's always helping out others in the gym or at the crag. Almost more impressive than his list of accomplishments: We watched him pull off the most impressive lock off with cut feet we've ever seen. What made it more impressive is that he didn't realize he did it. In his mind he was just freeing up one hand to grab the top of the wall to finish the route.
Sam loves our shirts for the softness and odor resistance. He was thrilled with the freedom of motion in our shorts and was amazed to see they did not restrict his movement or pull no matter how he moved.
Jake climbs for Upper Limits in Maryland Heights, MO (home gym of TRAGUR). He is an absolute beast. He flows thru one powerful move after another, and uses finger pockets so well they look like jugs. We were lucky enough to earn Jake's support for our clothing last year. He has one more year of USAC climbing left, and we can't wait to see what he can accomplish.
Jake likes the freedom of movement offered by the shorts when bouldering. He also likes the fit and length of the beanie.
We enjoy climbing with Jake's parents during Team Practice, and try our best not to feel defeated when he uses our latest project as a warm up.
