Warrick, who began competing in adaptive competitions just three years ago, has earned the opportunity to compete in the International Federation of Sport Climbing World Paraclimbing Championship for the the second straight year. He will compete July 15-17 in Briacon, France.

Last year, Warrick finished 13th in his division during the world competition in Innsbruck, Austria.

Warrick’s first adaptive competition was with the USA Climbing’s National Adaptive Competition in Somerville, Mass. He has since competed in two more USA Climbing nationals, with both coming at Vertical Adventures in Columbus.
