While growing up, Felipe Camargo didn’t have a local mega gym or a space with modern holds and walls for training. Instead, he made do with a facility containing old plywood walls, which amounted to little more than the size of a home wall. Through persistence and dedication to the craft, he worked became the first South American to climb 9B (5.15b).

“I want to show that it’s possible to climb hard from anywhere in the world,” said Camargo. “Of course, it’s easier if you have amazing training facility, but there’s no reason why South Americans can’t be climbing 9B.”
