20100828_c3_crank_kids_05The second Chiang Mai Climbing Community CRANK! got off to a strong start on Saturday with the kids bouldering competition.  Little climbers came from all over town to pull down on new routes.  Spotted and coached by CMRCA instructors, these young athletes impressed everyone with their energy and enthusiasm!  It was especially great to see kids from local orphanages enjoying the day and learning new skills.  Chiang Mai has some terrific young climbers!  For us, the great turnout means this is the time to launch our Climbing Kids sponsorship program.

Are you interested in sponsoring a young local climber for one year of focused coaching at CMRCA?  Email to learn more.  Also, don’t forget the Saturday youth coaching programs for any kids who are psyched for a new sport and a lifetime of adventure!
