Lee Cossey and His Difficult Project

Lee Cossey has been climbing for nearly 20 years, and for the last 12, he has been off-and-on trying The Red Project 5.14d.

Cossey started climbing with his uncle who was a climbing guide and was very much into the traditional style of climbing.

For years, Cossey wasn’t into sport climbing. Then he realized it’s an extension of the gymnastics, which he’d done for years prior to climbing. The athletic, technical and psychological aspects really appealed.
