SCARPA athlete Rob Pizem started his climbing career in Ohio before taking off to travel the globe, top-roping, free climbing, hiking, and more. Rob now resides in Colorado where he’s developing new routes and bringing fellow climbers along for the ascent. Earlier this year, he attended and taught a clinic at the 10th Annual Red Rock Rendezvous.
The new year stormed in like an ice queen near my neck of the woods in Colorado. It was bitter cold and the outdoor rock climbing opportunities between January and April were few and far between, which is why I was so excited about this year’s 10th Annual Red Rock Rendezvous. I had a chance to climb under the warm Nevada sun and teach some traditional climbing techniques to aspiring tradsters at the event.
