“Timy’s knowledge of climbing, exercise science, and practical competitive experience at the highest level all go into his camps. I have met very few professionals in the climbing industry that have such a large body of practical knowledge in climbing training techniques. Timy’s training camp was a huge springboard to our success in winning our first Team Regional Championship followed by our largest attendance as a team at National Events during the 2011/2012 season.“
