At the age of 18, Colin Duffy has already made a name for himself as one of the world’s most exciting young climbers. By 2019 (aged just 15), he had completed two 8c+ routes at Red River Gorge (Pure Imagination and Southern Smoke). And in 2021, he was the youngest climber to compete at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.

So, how did Colin recover from his Olympic exploits? He headed to Hurricane, Utah and took on some of the hardest climbing routes the US state has to offer, including the 9a Life of Villains.

Watch this mind-bending climber do his thing below.
