Saturday Sippings Vol 11

Today may be one of my favorite Saturdays! August 24 is officially Global Climbing Day  Some of you may know that for the last 15 years I’ve been a professional rock climber. I know, crazy! I’ve had the great fortune of traveling the world with friends and brands like The North Face simply climbing rocks!
So this week’s edition is all about CLIMBING!
Enjoy it,

Matt Segal

For starters, it was on a climbing trip to the Bugaboos of British Columbia that I first came up with the idea for Alpine Start. Seems like ages ago but those sure were exciting times!

Unless you live under a rock, as opposed to on one, you’ve heard of Alex Honnold and his film Free Solo but what most people don’t know is Alex has a foundation that is dedicated to supporting solar energy initiatives world wide. Pretty cool stuff.

Over 20 years ago I started climbing at an indoor facility in Miami FL. Without so much as a hill in sight, I focused on competitions. It’s absolutely insane to think that climbing is going to be in the Tokyo Olympics. Just last week Brook Raboutou became the first American to be awarded an invitation to Tokyo. Exciting times for the sport of competition climbing!
