Louis Parkinson (or Captain Cutloose to some!) is a force of nature… there is absolutely no denying that, whether you’ve seen one of his competition performances, a strength party trick in his Insta or a clip of him training at home, he’s got some serious positive energy! 

This is one of the primary reasons why we wanted to sit down to Louis and talk to him about his approach to climbing – ranging from training to challenges, to coaching, to his thoughts on diversity. As many of you will know, Louis is a V13 boulder, head coach at Catalyst in London and a highly decorated competition climber. 

In this interview, we see Tom primarily delve into the mindset behind climbing that we know is yet another extremely important part of the puzzle.
