Meet Climber Dan Mirsky at our Austin North Lamar Store!

Austin North Lamar Store
May 3rd at 4pm

Whole Earth Provision Co. is excited to welcome climber Dan Mirsky to our North Lamar store in Austin on May 3rd at 4 pm. Mirsky’s visit precedes his evening appearance at the Austin Bouldering Project where he will present a slide show and host several Black Diamond videos.

Mirsky originally hails from New York but now calls Colorado home when he’s not traveling in his Airstream trailer in search of warm weather and great climbing. A gifted athlete, he played team sports 12 months of the year for over 10 years. As his interest in competitive team sports waned, he turned to climbing. Mirsky was hooked by the interplay of strength, technique and strategy the sport required and the endless opportunities for practice and improvement.

“One of my favorite things about climbing is problem solving. I love approaching a new route/potential project and going through the process of turning something that seems impossible into something I believe I can achieve. Do you know that moment when your project goes from feeling impossible to doable? I like that part a lot!”

“My success in climbing is a result of continual hard work, a dedication to training, and an eternal obsession to be better tomorrow than I was today. I have improved each year as I continue to train myself indoors and outdoors. An integral part of my philosophy when it comes to training for climbing is that the most important thing for us to train is weakness.” Mirsky believes that “We have the most to be gained by trying to improve the things we’re worst at, and then using a variety of tools and techniques to turn those weaknesses into strengths.”

Mental training is also important to Mirsky. “Learning to climb with confidence in the face of repeated failure, fatigue, frustration, and pain is not easily accomplished. I have dedicated more time and energy to improving my climbing confidence than any other form of training, and it has brought more success than any other form of training. This is especially true in recent years.”

Have questions about climbing and training? Here’s your chance to ask a pro. Please stop by our North Lamar store on May 3rd at 4 pm to meet Dan Mirsky. And oh, by the way, he’s also a fan of the TV show “Friday Night Lights!”
