David Naude

Rock Climber
Cape Town, South Africa
D.O.B: 9 May 2001



David put on a harness for the first time in 2007 when on a camping trip in the Cedarberg with his family, the moment he stepped off the ground he was hooked and knew it was going to become a huge part of his life. When he is not actually out at a climbing location he will be found either at one of the local indoor climbing gyms(Bloc 11 or City Rock) or watching and editing videos about climbing. He has been very active in encouraging others to get into climbing and from his first year at high school brought renewed energy to the school climbing club where he quickly adopted the role of team captain and coach. “Spiderman” as dubbed by Team South Africa when attending the Youth Olympic Games in 2018(first time rock climbing was listed as an Olympic sport) has a resume of top results longer than some of the climbs he has conquered. David’s enthusiasm for the sport has led him to coaching members of the Junior National team and being the official route setter for the Boulder league, he helps in the Western Cape Climbing events to assist with teaching technique to disadvantaged kids in both bouldering and lead climbing.
