Jimmy Webb is not one of the world's strongest and most accomplished boulderers by mistake. He is obsessive about every aspect of the sport, from the details of body positioning and footwork, to the ins-and-outs of strengthening his fingers to climb v16. Jimmy's understanding of movement and his ability to spot the changes needed in other climbers' technique is unparalleled.
Coach Hannah Donnelly is an accomplished athlete at just 25 years old. From handling the stress of international competition, to coming back from multiple back surgeries, to climbing V12, Hannah has a wide range of experience with the sport that allows her to connect with a variety of climbers. Hannah is a technician on the rock and she encourages those she coaches to find success by moving in a way that feels natural to them.
