A little something to let you know who I am.

My name is Alex Sosa Manon and I am 13 years old. I started climbing when I was 12 at my local gym that just opened up in brooklyn called Brooklyn Boulders. It was a hot summer day and my mom said there was a rock wall 5 blocks from my house. So I rode my bike over to Brooklyn Boulders and found myself more than a rock wall, a huge rock gym!

 

So I got a day pass and rented shoes and started, I didn't know anything about grades at the time so I was doing everything I could. I thought to myself that if I did this a lot I could get good at it.

After 2 months I was pretty good, I reached V5 and wanted to go higher. So I would come to the climbing gym everyday after school and climb for as long as I could. Now I am focused on getting strong on outdoor bouldering and competing.
