MARCUS GARCIA

#OspreyAthlete 

“Marcus Garcia might be the best climber you’ve never heard of.” — Rock and Ice Magazine, issue 238. Marcus is an all-around climber with over 25 year of experience, and has established over 200 new routes, including everything from traditional, sport, and mixed climbing. However, his biggest accomplishment and legacy is not how hard he can push himself, but what he passes on to the next generation of climbers as a coach and mentor. As lead coach for youth Team USA Ice Climbing, Marcus is helping develop the next generation of Olympic Caliber athletes. When Marcus is not out teaching climbing clinics, he can be found in Durango, Co at his climbing gym. Marcus’s clinics are loved by all.
