Climb-It’s Kyle Owen to Compete in The Battle In The Bubble

So Cal climber Kyle Owen will be representing Climb-It Holds as he does his best to bring home the big $$ at The Battle in The Bubble.  Kyle is no stranger to Boulder, and he’s no slouch in competition either.  Last year he surprised everybody when, as a member of the 2009 USA Climbing Bouldering Team, he earned one of only 6 spots in Finals against a very stacked field at the Bouldering World Cup in Vail.  Here are some pics I took of his dramatic solution to Men’s Final 1:

Jumpin' like Jordan

Stick!

After a great performance he ended up in 5th–an amazing result for a climber who literally came out of left field to best many international competitors far more experienced in World Cup style competitions.  Here is a video of the event: Kyle Owen Climbs in the IFSC Bouldering World Cup Finals, 2009 on Vimeo.

Almost sticking the last move of Final #4!

He’s a nice kid with a great attitude and a bunch of potential, and we are extremely excited to see how he does at The Battle in The Bubble.  Wanna know more about him?  Check out:
