Young Eden Anbar loves to climb. He was first turned on to climbing when he visited Vital Carlsbad in summer 2011. Since then, he has developed his strength, honed his technique, and nurtured his innate skill as a rock climber. After many months of climbing along side the staff, coaches, and other Vitalians, he joined the Vital Youth Team. When Competition season came around, Eden eagerly entered the local redpoint style competitions. He quickly learned that he enjoyed competition climbing, and his results reflected that.
Through coaching, YouTube videos, outdoor trips, and solo vital sessions, Eden has advanced through two USA Climbing Qualifiers back in October and November, Regional's in December and Divisional's in January. He will attend Nationals in Colorado Springs May 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Prior to becoming the Youth Coach I have watched Eden expand his climbing capabilities since the beginning. His passion, curiosity, and enthusiasm of climbing are contagious, refreshing and rewarding to be apart of.
