I’m Rory, and I created Inside Climbing to cover indoor and competition climbing in more depth and breadth than mainstream climbing media has traditionally done.

I aim to cover all three disciplines, boulder, speed, and lead with equal weight.

I will focus on depth over breadth: going deep instead of skimming the surface. I will explore beyond the who and the what and look at the why and the how.

I don’t expect you will like everything I create, but I hope I create something you love.

I will sometimes dive deep into the data, and I will share the data we use and explain our methods so that you can understand and build on our work. We will make mistakes; we are only human, after all, but we aim to clarify and correct them as quickly as possible.

If you are interested in joining this journey, please take the time to explore the site.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
