Cooper has been climbing since he was fifteen, and since then has trained, traveled, and competed. After spending countless hours in the gym bouldering he took his skills outside and completed his first V10 within two years of becoming a climber. Since then he has spent his highschool years finding time to travel the country to places like the Red River Gorge, RMNP, Red Rocks, Little Rock City and many more in pursuit of climbing difficult boulders. In his first year participating in USA-Climbing, Cooper made it to youth nationals and since then has continued to to enjoy the sport and is planning to participate in open nationals this year. He hopes to complete more difficult boulders but also devote more of his time to trad climbing and multi-pitch climbing.  After his first Multi-pitch (Epinephrine) in Red Rocks, Cooper has shifted from merly pebble wrestling to conquering the massive walls of rock. 

Dream climbing trip/destination? Rocklands

What would you name the autobiography of your life? Right now it would be “I’m not stupid I’m just 18”.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to be a really talented chef.
