WELCOME TO THE TEAM FILIP SCHENK! 

 

At just 18 years old Filip Schenk has proven himself a formidable force in climbing and we are excited to welcome him to the Wild Country Family. In 2017 Filip stood atop the podium taking first place in the Youth A World Championships for Bouldering. Then this year between training, finishing school, and getting ready to compete in the men's climbing circuit he sent his first 9a, Le Cadre in Céüse. Congratulations on the route and we are excited to have you as part of the Wild Country family.
