About: Nathaniel Coleman became the first American male to qualify for sport climbing’s Olympic at the Olympic qualifier in Toulouse, France.


“I think the last time I’ve cared so much about a competition was in the weeks leading up to my first open national, back in 2014.

I’m usually pretty laid back until the actual day of the comp when I can let my nerves surface and feel them drive me to compete.

But not this one, it’s got my number and won’t stop calling.”

The Olympic Climbing Combined Format has 3 Focus Points for Nathaniel Coleman: Power, Power Endurance, and Stamina. Nathaniel shows us his go-to training tool for power endurance: the woody.

Nathaniel Coleman is exploring unclimbed areas in the southern deserts of Utah. His fresh drive to push the boundaries of bouldering is what allows him to access the inaccessible.

Over the past year Nathaniel Coleman has been spending time developing a new bouldering area in central Utah. The culmination of this development has lead to his recent ascent of the areas hardest boulder problem "Power of the Psych" V14."

After being indoors on the Bouldering World Cup circuit for most the summer, Kyra Condie got back on some sandstone this July, with a checklist of projects on a few classic Rocklands boulders.

Coleman takes a detour from the climbing gym to the remote and little known climbing area of the Dry Canyon in Southern Arizona. With the promise of European style limestone and one huge undone project out the steepest part of the Celebrity Cave, Nathaniel and Dalton Bunker set to work on a beauty of a rock climb known as The Lee Majors Project.
