Shelburne, VT – (February 2nd, 2011) Mammut Sports Group, providers of Swiss quality gear and apparel, welcomes another world-class climbing athlete to their team roster. Young Canadian Sean McColl joins Mammut as he takes the sport climbing scene by storm – and trains for the the upcoming 2011 bouldering and climbing World Cup competitions.

McColl claims that "pushing standards since 1987" is his motto – but he's racked up some seriously impressive climbs, including a second ascent of Chris Sharma's classic "Dreamcatcher" (5.14d/9a) on McColl's home turf of Squamish, British Columbia. A speedy ascent of "PuntX" (5.14d/9a), an overhanging test of strength completed in just 1 minute 40 seconds in Gorges du Loup, France, established McColl as force to be reckoned with abroad.

In bouldering, McColl also ranks among the best. Sending "Mandala SDS" (8b+/V.10+), "Goldfish Trombone" (8b+/V10+), "Alsan" (8b+/V10+), several 8a+/V.10 bouldering flashes and more than 100 other boulder problems 8a/V.10 and harder, McColl is stomping through the goals he has set for himself. With 17 rankings among the top 10 in previous World Cup competitions, 9 of which were in the finals, and several podium places, McColl will be one to watch in the upcoming World Cup, as well as in his personal climbing season.

“We are always excited about adding more talent to our climbing and snow athlete rosters,” said Mike Welch, Sales and Marketing Manager for Mammut Sports Group

North America. “Sean is a super strong, passionate, and focused climber who's been dominating in sport climbing and bouldering internationally – we are psyched to see him representing Mammut on the comp circuit and as he pursues his personal climbing goals.”

"I am really excited to be on board with Mammut; joining a team of talented climbers is both inspiring and motivating,” said McColl. ”This partnership is one that will help me achieve my climbing goals, while testing the latest advancements in climbing gear."
