Matthew Austin - Youth B Continental Lead Team 


What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?

 When I was eight or nine, I went camping with my family and they had a climbing wall onsite. I tried it out and really enjoyed it, so for the next year or so I hassled my parents to take me climbing again. Eventually and fortunately, they took me to Bayside Rock when I was ten and here I am now, four years later.


Your home gym is?

 Bayside Rock


What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals?

 I'm very happy that I'm on the Australian continental team this year and I'm hoping to qualify for the international team in 2018.


Do you have any idols?

 James Kassay and Campbell Harrison both inspirations. And of course, Peter Parker.


If you have any sponsors?

 Not yet... ;-)


Do you have any interesting facts about you?
