From winning Youth World Championships in both lead and bouldering, to jaw-dropping sending sprees outside (like the time she sent two 5.14c’s and a 5.14a in just two days at the Red), if Claire Buhrfeind isn’t on your radar, she should be. We’re psyched to announce that Claire has joined the BD team, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this 19-year-old crusher.
Truth be told, Kai Lightner has been part of the BD family for half a decade. That’s right, even before he was on the Today Show, NBC, and winning gold in the Youth World Championships. Despite his success and international acclaim, however, Kai is still the humble kid we “unofficially” hooked up back in the day. That’s why we’re so stoked to make it official. Welcome to the team, Kai!
