Oceana Mackenzie

Have you ever finished that super hard project at your gym only to turn around see a young prodigy warming on it? If not, than you haven’t met Oceana. At 15 years young she is well on the way to becoming one of Australia’s greatest exports. She is a member of the Australian youth team for Bouldering, Lead and speed climbing.  Even though she is technically too young to compete with the Adults, she routinely trumps them all as a wildcard competitor. Not to be limited by the boundaries of indoor climbing, Oceana also crushes outdoors having sent multiple hard boulders up in the double digits!

 If there is any up and coming athlete you should be keeping your eye on, it’s Oceana.

Comp Climbing or Outdoor climbing: Both are amazing in different ways, I can’t choose!! I love them both.
