Kevin Jorgeson

Genre: Adventure, Extreme

Country of Origin: United States (USA)

Kevin has been climbing since he was born. At first, it was fences, cupboards, ladders and trees. At age 14, Kevin stepped foot in Vertex Climbing Center and never looked back. "Climbing was always a very natural thing for me to do, so when I found rock climbing, it felt perfect. I can't imagine a sport that fits my personality any better."

Kevin quickly joined the ranks of Team Vertex and began traveling on the youth competition circuit. "I remember driving every weekend to a different competition, always hungry to improve on my last result." By 2001, Kevin began winning National level competitions for his age category and traveling to the Youth World Championships in Europe. "Competition climbing had a huge influence on my climbing style. I learned quickly that you only have one chance to succeed, so you need to make your efforts count. I've applied that same mentality to highball bouldering and all hard climbing in general." - Official Facebook Page
