    Competitive Climbing

    Competition Climbing is an exciting individual sport.  There are several formats in competition climbing. In all formats the team member is competing with youth his/her same age.

    Speed climbing is a timed sport.  The climber begins when his foot leaves the ground and ends when he touches the timer at the top to stop the clock.  It is fun, exciting, and all ages can compete.

    The Sport & Speed offers 2 formats for difficulty climbing.  With the on-site format, the climber is given one chance to get to the top.  Each hold is given a point value.  The climber gets full points if he/she gets to the top.  Climbers are not allowed to see the route before climbing it, and must wait for their turn to climb.  Usually they climb 3-4 routes, and the scores are cumulated to give the climber’s final score.

    The red-point format is a little more laid back.  The climber is given a fixed amount of time to complete their routes.  This is usually 2.5 to 3 hours.  Each climb is given a fixed value, and at the end of the time, the climber’s total score represents his 5 highest rated climbs.

    The Bouldering formats are the same as the Sport & Speed.  The Regional, Divisional, and National competition format is always onsight.

Orange Squeeze Coaches

Hi I’m Miranda! I started my climbing journey in San Diego California. My favorite climbing trip is actually my first climbing trip to Riverside Quarry. It was an experience I will never forget!

I’ve been a youth climbing coach for 3 years and have been working at inSPIRE Rock for a year now. My favorite thing about being a coach is to see the kids grow as climbers.

In my spare time I like to binge watch space documentaries and do yoga.

Hey my name is Cameron, I’ve been climbing for the better part of 8 years now and I have no plan to stop!
I was introduced to climbing a bit as a kid but didn’t really start climbing seriously until I was a freshman at Texas Tech. I join Tech’s climbing team where I went climbing out in New Mexico 1-2 times a month with the occasional trip out to the Wichita Mountains or Hueco Tanks. I also was able to compete in the Collegiate Climbing Series competitions.

This summer I was a coach for inSPIRE Rock’s Orange Crush Summer Camp and absolutely loved it. I really enjoy bringing new people into the world of climbing and sharing my knowledge and experience with them.

Hi I’m James! I got into climbing on a whim. I had heard about inSPIRE through a former roommate. I started climbing at 5.7 and V0 like most people. I like to climb outside at Reimers Ranch in Austin, and Enchanted Rock in Fredericksburg and inside at Inspire Rock, Crux, and Austin Boulder Project.

I enjoy climbing because it challenges you to analyze what you are capable of and who you think you are. There will always be a place in my training and climbing that I need to work on. Climbing helps me understand that I am only human, and I need other people to get through a project. Just like in everyday life.

My favorite thing about being a coach is watching climbers work together to tackle a project. I am there to motivate, not to dictate. I believe the best way to send a route is learning from other climbers and bouncing off ideas on how to solve a problem.
