Tony Reynaldo


Tony Reynaldo is a Renaissance man – half rock climber, half designer, half college professor and 100% lunatic. If you mixed Bruce Jenner, Albert Einstein, Marcel Breuer and Homer Simpson, then removed the Albert Einstein, you would get Tony. At any given time, you might find him teaching a design class to his students at Ohio State, climbing in his beloved Hueco Tanks, or designing holds for any number of rock climbing companies. He’s really quite badass.

As if he didn’t have enough to do already, a few years ago Tony took it upon himself to build a climbing gym co-op in rock-challenged Columbus and now holds several annual comps that attract climbers from all across the land. Tony is the epitome of the athlete who gives back more than he takes.
