CLIMBING TEAM TRYOUTS

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Interested in being a part of Edgeworks’ Climbing team?  Think you’ve got what it takes to pull hard and represent Edgeworks?  We want you!

We’ve recently finished an extremely successful season for Team Edgeworks, with our climbers competing throughout the region. Team Edgeworks finished seventh in the Sport and Speed Divisional Championship, and sent four climbers to the National Championship in Pennsylvania.  As the new school year begins, we’re looking forward to an even more exciting season’s beginning, and in order to keep improving our team we’re shaking things up.

We’re recruiting new members!  We’re looking for youth climbers who want to improve, and are willing to work hard to do it.  Remember, attitude is more important than age or present ability, so don’t be scared to come and try out for the team.  To tryout, you must be registered and can do so by calling or stopping by the front desk.

Tryout Schedule:
If your child is in category C or D: Friday, August 2, 2019 9:30am – 12:00pm
If your child is in category Jr, A, or B: Friday, August 2, 2019 1:00pm – 3:30pm

If you have any questions about the tryout feel free to shoot Team Manager and Coach Lisa Ferazza an email at lisa@edgeworksclimbing.com.  We’re looking forward to seeing you on Friday August 2!

Cole Cook

Member since March 2019

How did you start climbing?

Cole: A few months ago I was with my daughter and I heard about Edgeworks online and decided to try it out. We completely fell in love with it and have been going steadily ever since.

Why do you climb at Edgeworks?

Cole: I love to climb at Edgeworks because it’s an amazing facility, all the staff are great and I’ve met a bunch of friends there. Everyone there is awesome and very helpful.

What do you do when you’re not climbing?

Cole: When I’m not climbing I’m usually working and spending time with my family and friends.

Where is your favorite place to climb outside?

Cole: I have not yet climbed outside but plan on making a trip to exit 38 very soon.

What are some interesting facts that you’d like to share with the Edgeworks community?

Cole: I love being outside. Other than rock climbing my favorite hobby would definitely be snowboarding. I like doing anything active; I can’t stand sitting around. 

Which do you prefer: top rope, lead, or bouldering?

Cole: I’ve only been climbing for about three months and I recently started lead climbing which I’m completely addicted to.

Emily Anderson 

Member since January 2018

How did you start climbing?

Emily: My first experience climbing was when I was 17 and living in Colorado. I went with my brother and his friend to North Table Mountain in Golden. I immediately loved it, but didn’t start regularly climbing until I moved to WA several years later and decided to get a membership at Edgeworks.

Why do you climb at Edgeworks?

Emily: Edgeworks has a very special, welcoming community. I always tell people, I have never been to a gym where I have met so many friendly and genuinely awesome individuals. I also love all the unique spaces and different ways you can challenge yourself physically in addition to the walls, like the campus boards, weight rooms, and yoga studio. I also often do homework and work on my computer at the upstairs tables. Really, Edgeworks has become a bit of a second home.

What do you do when you’re not climbing?

Emily: When I am not climbing, you can probably find me at work or at school. I am a server at Stack 571 Whiskey bar and a student at the University of Washington-Tacoma, studying Psychology and Education. I also really enjoy playing acoustic guitar and singing, hanging out with my family and friends, and hiking/backpacking around the PNW!

Where is your favorite place to climb outside?

Emily: So far, I have only been climbing outside in three different places. Once in Golden, Leavenworth, and exit 38, so really I have just started to dip my toes in outdoor climbing. Although I love the scenery and atmosphere of climbing in Leavenworth, I would have to say as of now I really enjoy sport climbing and all the options for sport that exit 38 has for this. That being said I really want to take a trip down to Smith Rock soon!

What are some interesting facts that you’d like to share with the Edgeworks community?

Emily: I am actually currently conducting a research project on Women and Rock Climbing, and using Edgeworks as well as other climbing locations as field sites for observation. I’m nearing the end of my research, and have learned so much and met so many great people through the process.

Which do you prefer: top rope, lead, or bouldering?

Emily: Right now I love top roping, but leading is in the near future for me 🙂 My favorite projects would probably have to be stemming projects and routes with mostly crimps!
