Nick Picarella has been climbing for 12 years and competing for 10. He
was a national team member in both boulder and sport for several years and earned a national title in 2011. Since then, he has competed on pro level circuits, winning multiple Dark Horse events and making finals in many others. While Nick enjoys competing, he loves the outdoors as well having climbed in areas like Joe’s Valley, Priest Draw, The Red River Gorge, and more. His proudest ascent is getting the first ever flash on Kinesthetic Awareness, V11, at Mt. Gretna. Nick has spent the past few years honing his setting skills, building volumes, and sharing his knowledge of climbing and competing with different youth teams. When Nick isn’t climbing, you can find him sitting at the piano or planting in his garden.
