Kevin Lindlau is a competition ice and mixed climber living in Bozeman, MT. He has been a member of the USA Ice Climbing team for the past five years and in 2019 became the first and only American to compete in a Lead final at an Ice Climbing World Cup. Kevin was also the 2018/2019 Lead and Speed North American ice climbing champion and has been ranked 15th overall in Lead on the World Cup circuit. Along with his competition climbing, Kevin can often be found dry tooling in caves around the globe while traveling on the World Cup circuit during the winter. In the summer, you will find him scratching around on tools in his sandals keeping his stoke alive!
In addition, Kevin has helped take the Youth USA Ice climbing team to compete at the Youth UIAA Ice Climbing World Championships in 2017 and 2018 with his mentor Marcus Garcia. Kevin has ambitions to start a youth ice climbing team in the Bozeman area in hopes of pursuing his passion for teaching and to help share his love for the sport of mixed climbing and get the stoke high for the future generation of climbers!
