Classic Boulder Family: the Raboutous.

11-Year-Old Girl Shatters Climbing Records

I climb at one of the gyms this family climbs at, so I’ve seen this girl jump on tough problems gleefully with her friends and mom for many years. I knew she was a talent, but Boulder’s full of climbing prodigies. Had no idea she was this good.

11-year-old Brooke Raboutou is a rock climbing phenom who regularly breaks world records on elite bouldering and sport climbs once thought impossible for someone her age. With two former world champion climbers for parents and coaches, Brooke’s pedigree is unmatched. Now she has set her sights on pushing both herself and the climbing world to even greater heights.

PRODIGIES is a bi-weekly series showcasing the youngest, brightest, most talented phenoms from across the globe as they challenge themselves to reach new heights and the stories behind them.
