Adlai Marquez trains on the new MoonBoard at the Brevard Rock Gym before heading off to Utah.

Fifteen-year-old Adlai Marquez, a local rock climber, has made it to the national stage.

Marquez, his mom and grandmother leave today for Salt Lake City, Utah, for the 2018 USA Climbing Bouldering Nationals, where he will compete against the other top 50 climbers in his age group from around the country.

To make it to nationals, a climber has to score high enough in the regional competition and then make it to the national scene.

This is his first trip to the national bouldering circuit, and in his words, he is a boulderer, preferring the rope-less climbing that is much simpler.
