"As far as my experience doing lead tests, I haven't seen one that smooth in a while," said East Betas coach Ryan Moon. "His climbing and clipping was smooth and took his fall like a champ."  Young used a Grigri during the belay portion of his test and kept a perfect amount of slack out during the entire climb, providing a gentle catch for the climber.

A gym fixture, "Gentle Ben"spreads his infectious enthusiasm in the gym as much as he can  through his mischievous grin and signature bowl haircut.

Touchstone sponsors a number of youth teams at every gym location.  Enroll your young climber into the program at your local gym.  They will be as psyched as Ben!
