Climber, photographer, and filmmaker, Jon Glassberg personifies tryhard. Which explains how he transitioned from sending more than 250 V10-V13 ascents to founding climbing media powerhouse Louder Than Eleven in 2008.
"I have spent the better part of 20 years slipping, sliding, and greasing off my projects. After my first day using FrictionLabs chalk I was sold and haven't looked back.
