The first Australian to climb 9a / 35 / 5.14d. An early Awesome Woodys addict. Tom takes his Cliff Board Mini everywhere he goes – determined to never miss a training session. Living in the Blue Mountains, not far from near Sydney, Tom spends plenty of time looking for new projects that push not only his own personal boundaries, but those of hard Australian climbing overall. We were also stoked to see him compete in the first two seasons of Australian Ninja Warrior.

Lee CujesWith over 20 years of climbing around Queensland under his belt and having nearly climbed everything in the state, Lee Cujes recently relocated to the Blue Mountains where the 5400+ routes should keep him busy for a good while to come. Lee's main focus is sport climbing, and as an insatiable route developer, he has over 250 first ascents to his name up to 32/8b+ and has been a primary driver in opening entire crags such as Redcliffs, various sectors of the Glasshouse Mountains, many routes at Mt Coolum, Vesuvius, Spot X, Crossroads and more. He's also the founder of Safer Cliffs Queensland, a rebolting initiative responsible for funding and rebolting hundreds of routes in the state. A training fiend, Lee had one of the most extensive home woodies in Brisbane and trained climbers for several years under his coaching business Upskill Climbing. Lee's other love is travelling around the world in the quest for limestone. Lee has tested and provided feedback on Awesome Woodys products since the very beginning, and more recently helped develop the Cliff Board Micro.
Clipping bolts or plugging gear; delicate slabs or thrutchy offwidths; onsighting or redpointing; long multi-day trad-ventures or single-pitch cragging; cliffs, boulders, buildings or trees: Alex simply loves climbing things. Despite this apparent love, at the crag or gym he tends to spend more time talking than actually climbing, although he still somehow crushes on rock when it matters. Alex especially has a heart for new routing and adventures where the outcome is unknown, but you dig deep and go for it; a trait that is shared with Awesome Woodys. We recognise his potential as an all-round climber and will support him in his ambitions … watch this space. Currently living in Brisbane - wherein he started climbing in 2013 after meeting some friendly climbers at Kangaroo Point - Alex works with us at Awesome Woodys creating our training tools and walls … Insider tip: He is contractually obliged to personally bless your Cliffboard with a kiss upon request.
