Izzo began working in climbing gyms in high school and has watched routesetters closely since then. He finally convinced Rory to let him pick up the drill in late 2018. On rest days he tries his best at online chess and hangs out with his cat and partner at home. 


“The more I visit climbing gyms and learn about the setting industry, the more I appreciate Tufas’ routesetting environment. Setters here are provided with all the tools, time, and guidance to bring high quality routes to our members. And most importantly, setter health is prioritized, enabling progression in our own climbing and training pursuits. I would not be at the same place in my climbing career if not for the support and development provided by the Tufas team.”
