Colin Duffy is a rock climber from Broomfield, Colorado. His passion for rock climbing began at a fitness center at age five. He later began climbing competitively and outdoors at age eight. Colin is a 10-time USAC youth national champion across all disciplines. He won gold medals in lead climbing at the 2017 and 2018 IFSC Youth World Championships followed by a silver medal in lead in 2019.

Along with this, he’s sent numerous V13 boulders and has his sights set on several new projects.

The Airnet Harness -- I’ve worn Black Diamond harnesses exclusively my entire climbing career and when I first began using the Airnet Harness I was amazed at how light and comfortable it is
