Sam Lavender - Youth A Boulder

I am Sam Lavender from Townsville in North Queensland. I started climbing in a local fitness gym called Genisis that housed a rock-climbing wall. The moment I reached the top of the wall I was hooked. I have been climbing for three years now and I love every moment of it.  My home gym is now The Hot Rock Adventure Center in Townsville.  

I have a fantastic coach Kim Kamo and through her guidance and my hard work, I have achieved 5th in lead nationals and 1st in bouldering nationals last year and this year I was placed first in Queensland and 2nd overall in the lead state championships; surprising, as my strength is bouldering.  

Prior to that I had managed to qualify for the Australian Team for bouldering to compete in China for Worlds. My ultimate goals are to climb above 30 and V12, hopefully J. I love climbing indoors for competitions, but I also think climbing outdoors really connects you with the sport and is essential to a climber’s experience.
