After representing High Altitude Fitness at USA Climbing Youth competitions for the past few
years, and multiple attempts at a national title, Stefan Fellner, a 16 year old member of Team
Flash, has conquered an incredible feat; Stefan held strong at the Youth Sport Climbing National
Competition in Kennesaw, GA this July, finishing in 3rd place for his category (Youth Male A).
High Altitude Fitness could not be more proud of this dedicated, driven young man, who
accepted his invitation to the World Competition in Austria, August 30-September 10, 2017.
Stefan’s intrinsic motivation and commitment to his training, as well as support from coaches,
friends and family can be attributed to his success. High Altitude Fitness is running a raffle to
support Stefan’s travel fees (proceeds will also be divided to benefit the entirety of the youth
climbing program). We are also accepting donations of any amount towards Stefan’s trip.

High Altitude Fitness is extremely proud of our youth program, which has been in development
for over 5 years. The program accommodates climbers of all skill levels, starting with the Little
Sparks, beginners with BIG energy, progressing in age & climbing level, to Team Flash, our
competitive climbing team. Team Flash is a group of strong, dedicated kids, with a deep passion
for rock climbing. Team Flash has consistently preformed at local, regional and divisional
competitions, sending at least one climber to the national level on a seasonal basis. The
climbers and their coaches continue to impress the competition at national competitions across
the United States. The program opens up incredible opportunity to youngsters looking for a
place to channel excess energy. Accountability development, problem solving, and confidence
building are just the tip of the iceberg when assessing the benefits of youth climbing. Thus, we
are constantly looking for ways to improve our program, more specifically, to make it more
accessible to a wider group of kids. Fundraisers like this Climbing Club Raffle allows High
Altitude Fitness to plan more outdoor trips, offer scholarships, plan & fund team events, and
enhance the experience of our awesome kids club and their supportive families!
