One of the greatest things about the outdoor industry is the connections that we are able to make with passionate, like-minded individuals. We’ve been lucky to support many of these individuals through the Trango athlete team and are thrilled to announce the latest addition, Alex Johnson. Alex Johnson was the first american to win a Bouldering World Cup on US soil and needs little introduction. She has put up numerous first ascents and is an active member of the climbing community in Las Vegas.
“I’m really excited to be working with Trango. I’m ‘growing up’ as a climber, and I don’t want to become complacent and one-dimensional. I want to do more, I want to do it all… and be good at it all; bouldering, sport, multi-pitch, traditional. Trango is a brand I believe is enthusiastic about helping climbers of all levels branch out and grow by making some of the best products on the market. I think this is going to be a really cool partnership, and I’m looking forward to diving into these new realms of the sport with a company I respect”, says Johnson.
The Trango athlete team was initiated as a means to support core, lifestyle climbers in their climbing and stewardship efforts. Today, the team has grown to include climbers of all disciplines who are working cooperatively to climb harder, give back and be good stewards of climbing and climbing areas.
