Earlier this year I announced a partnership with PCI that was met with decidedly mixed reviews. While that partnership is still developing (perhaps a bit slower than expected), PCI is continuing to evolve and better define their mission. In this guest post from PCI founder Kevin Jorgeson he shares a bit more on PCI’s mission as well as their developing Pro Clinic series.
Back in January, we unveiled a non-profit we had spent 1.5 years building, Pro Climbers International (PCI). Anyone who has ever tackled a large writing task, business idea, or climbing project can relate to the process of turning the intangible into something real. PCI is a living, breathing, growing organization. Our mission and programs continue to crystallize and materialize. With that said, I’m proud to share a video we created in collaboration with Louder Than 11:
PCI works in three core areas: Athletes, Community and Environment. Each area has its own set of programs. However, I believe our most meaningful programs emerge when these core areas intersect. The PCI Pro Clinic Series is born from our talented athletes working with the broader climbing community.
PCI’s Pro Clinic Series is a one-of-a-kind instructional tour, connecting the sport’s most inspiring athletes with the next generation of climbers. Each event features three PCI athletes working for a weekend of youth clinics, adult lessons, product demos, posters signings, raffles and slideshows. The goal is to share our passion, plain and simple.
Our first clinic is being held in Portland, OR at The Circuit on September 17 and 18th. This is the first of three clinics in Portland, all centered around the ABS schedule.

This ensures the youth climbers of the Pacific Northwest will be as prepared as possible for ABS Nationals in February! These events are not just for the kids. We also offer adult lessons in small groups of 4 with each athlete. To top it off, we are giving free slideshows for those who couldn’t make it to the clinics. We will raffle off some great prizes from each of the athlete’s sponsors and give all the money raised to the Access Fund!
PCI’s membership base is growing and now includes Tommy Caldwell, Sasha DiGiulian, Thomasina Pidgeon, Daniel Woods, Alex Johnson, Alex Honnold, Lynn Hill, Alex Puccio, Carlo Traversi, Ethan Pringle, Mayan Smith-Gobat, Chris Webb-Parsons, Paul Robinson, and more.
All of the above members have expressed interest in teaching these clinics. Our goal is to host 30 events in 2012, but the larger question is, are you interested?
