The Touchstone Zero Gravity Climbing Team wrapped up a phenomenal 2012 season, with a Silver Medal finish (for the second straight year) at the USA Climbing SCS Youth National Championships. Nationals were held in Atlanta GA July 5th-8th at Stone Summit.
In addition the team had 3 National Champions, Joshua Levin, Mirko Caballero and Natalia Grossman. Also making the US Team were Cicada Jenerik, Jacquelyn Wu, Katrina Louie, Nick Bradley and Dylan Meyerhoffer. Josh, Cicada, Jacquelyn and Katrina competed at the Youth World Championships in Singapore, August 29 to September 1. At the Youth World Championships, the vast majority of the US Team made semi finals but unfortunately only a few made finals. The Austrians, Japanese and other European countries were in excellent form.
