About Lukas:

Lukas has been climbing on the Bend Climbing Team for the past two seasons and has proved himself to be a hard working climber and a level headed yet fierce competitor.  While Lukas enjoys hard bouldering sessions in the gym he would just as soon be outside at Smith Rock transferring his climbing skills to the welded tuff.  Leading hard 10’s at Smith at age ten he’s well on his way to leading his age at 11.  Even at his young age Lukas is a role model in the climbing community supporting climbers of all abilities and ages and his passion for the sport is contagious.
