Pre-Divisionals Preparation Camp 2022


January 28th and 29th, Saturday and Sunday

Youth Camp

This 2 day camp is designed for those athletes who are looking to step up their mental and physical game and to give them a chance to climb at BlocHaven, the 2023 Youth Bouldering Divisionals host facility. This camp is recommended for competitors who have competed in a Regional USAC Event or at least 1 local USAC competition.

The camp will be led by Coaches Matt Jones, Will Snader, Reggie Goldkuhl and Henry Ritterpusch.

Routes will be set by our Head Setter, Aaron Davis and Cody Grodzki of Syndicate Routesetting. 

The goal of the camp is to provide athletes with an intensive preparation environment to help instill confidence in their abilities for a Divisional level event.

Cost: $300

If cost is a limiting factor, but you’d still like to be a part of the camp please contact our coordinator, Brittany 


A lunch option will be available, but if there are major dietary restrictions or if you’d prefer to bring your own lunch, please do!

Shortly after the start of his own climbing career he began coaching at the Mt Goat, which has led him to a decade long coaching journey. From climbing multi pitch trad routes, bouldering low ball choss and competing in the gym, he has loads of experience under his belt.He has traveled to the national championships the last 8 consecutive years. He looks forward to helping any kid achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

Reggie Goldkuhl

Reggie fell in love with climbing on the sticky sandstone of Southern Illinois. “Out of the 10 years that have passed since, only the last 2 have been spent pulling plastic. I’ve been a part of the Riveter’s setting crew since we opened in 2020 and have been coaching our competitive team for about the same time. Much of my coaching is informed by movement and technique I’ve learned through creating puzzles for climbers to navigate. I also pull from a lot of mindset work that I’ve employed through my outdoor experience. I love competing in almost any form because it encourages me to dig deep and try my hardest.”

Henry Ritterpusch


Henry Ritterpusch is a BlocHaven routesetter and coach with 5 years of experience coaching competitive youth athletes. Henry himself is a National Medalist and V13 climber with notable ascents around the country.⁠
