About Joseph:

Joseph David Catama is an aspiring 15 year old athlete whose love for climbing started only two years ago. His first experience in competitive  sports was in track and field where in just his second season, at age 13, he qualified and competed in the 2013 USA National Junior Olympics for 100m Hurdles in North Carolina. During that spring he discovered rock climbing and by the end of that summer, a new passion was born. Just beginning high school--being part of a team was intriguing.  He joined the Boulderdash Climbing Team in Westlake Village, CA led by coach Jesse Weiner. During his first bouldering season, Joseph placed 2 nd  at the Southern California Regional Championships, and sent his first ever V9, at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. He claimed the Southern California Regional Championship in sport climbing and then proceeded to place 5 th at the Youth Sport Climbing Nationals in Atlanta Georgia later that summer. Joseph takes seriously the belief that training to be the best version he was created to be in all areas of life will only lead to success. He embraces opportunities to grow personally and help in the climbing community. Joseph is currently training with Isaac Palatt and the Stronghold Climbing Team in Downtown Los Angeles. He has now sent multiple V10's, a V11, a 5.13b, and 5.13c over the course of this past year. Joseph's determination and burning passion manifest in his approach to each climb. He says, “I approach each climb believing and envisioning myself on the top.”
