Maxim Pare - WA - Junior Male - Lead & Boulder
I first started climbing 7 years ago in a local gym in Perth.
I started climbing because of my older brother who was already part of the youth squad at the time which eventually made me join the team as well.
My home gym is the Hub, however, I normally tend to rotate between all of the bouldering gyms in Perth to give me as much on sight training as possible.
I am definitely more of boulderer as I love the more modern style of bouldering including all the parkour type movements as well as hard spray board climbing. However, I really enjoy taking part in the Lead competitions year round and sport climbing outside.
As this is my last year competing in Juniors, I would really love to be able to make it through to semi-finals and possibly finals for Boulder and for Lead in order to gain as much international comp experience before transitioning into the Open competition scene next year.
Japanese cuisine would definitely be up there for my favorite kind of food. I would love to go visit Japan sometime soon.
