We are happy to announce the arrival of a new Allez Up family member! Tonde Katiyo will be joining our team as Routesetting Director
Tonde has been climbing for 20 years. In 2009, he opened L'Ouvre-Boîte, a collective of routesetters that share the same vision of routesetting. They offer top-quality training and routesetting services to gyms, federations and for competitions throughout the world. Tonde continues his work
Tonde has set for national and international climbing events throughout Europe, North America and Asia. In 2011 he was a guest speaker at the IFSC Route Setting Course on the topic of creativity in route setting. In 2013 he joined the Seattle Bouldering Project as Head Setter and continues to develop setter training and exchange networks. His journey has led him to Montreal, where he will work closely with our routesetters and staff to help enrich their knowledge and skills.
Allez Up has always prided itself on offering best-quality routes and climbing experience & culture, and we think the best way to do this is through the deepening and enrichment of our employees' knowledge!
Don't forget to give Tonde a hi-five when you see him!
