Hooked on climbing since the first day she tried it at fourteen years old, Nico’s been climbing indoors and outdoors as much as humanly possible. She’s also competed nationally! Setting is special to Nico, because she’s able to transform ideas from her head into an awesome reality, mixing the physical fun of climbing with pure creativity to produce something that everyone can enjoy. Nico tries to challenge herself by setting different styles of routes with her favorites being sustained, technical climbs on slightly overhanging terrain. She also loves to use pinches and crimps, making people use their feet. The best part about setting is watching people have fun and work hard on something that started out in her imagination! She also provides excellent rock climbing training for our kids team at Mesa Rim.
Being a Jedi Master of Beta, Rosie Bates is a coach as well as woman of rock climbing talent who is deeply committed to the sport. “The Aeneid” is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil. A quote from the legendary story reads “Possunt quia, posse videntur”; this translates into the “They are able because They think they are able” a motto Rosalie Bates lives her life of. Similar to Virgil, the Buddha says we are shaped by our thoughts’ and we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. Rosie Bates understands that life is all about attitude, she applies this to climbing as the sport is more than what meets the eye. It’s more than finger strength but the mind’s capacity to overcome obstacles. Climbing is a mental game about staying in the moment; if your mind wanders on the wall you’ll fall off. Nonetheless, it makes sense that she’s a Psychology major at the University of San Diego. At USD she has established a school rock climbing team, which now has over 30 members. Through teaching she passes down everything she knows to her pupils of all ages. Her weapons of choice are a pair of 5.10 moccasyms and a rack of trad gear. She has been climbing since 2004, crushed the longest route in Red Rocks and competed twice at ABS nationals as a youth competitor. Her skills are only growing and her journey only continues.
