Alexander and Thomas Huber, Fred and Francois Nicole, Sean and Timmy O’Neill, Glen and Muir Dawson: What do all of these climbers have in common? They are brothers that have accomplished incredible feats in the climbing world. Now, The Crimp Chronicles is proud to introduce Aiguille’s dynamic duo, The Eudy Brothers. Daniel Eudy (22) and Cody Eudy (19) were introduced to rock climbing after moving in together when their friend Danny (Pictured on the right) asked if they wanted to try it out. After a few attendances, it wasn’t long before both of them were jumping into the bouldering scene full force.
Daniel and Cody are more favorable of bouldering verses getting on a rope and both of them describe themselves as having a more dynamic style of climbing, with much to be practiced in technique and footwork. However, Cody has made quite a name for himself when it comes to dynos, having done many of the harder dynos set in the gym. Daniel on the other hand has had to do a bit of catching up after having to recover from a broken leg. But instead of sitting around playing videos game (well, at least all the time), Daniel was always at the gym, belaying his brother, doing hangboard, and even some top rope.
After now climbing for around nine months, the enjoyment of climbing is very similar in both Daniel and Cody’s mind. In any family, especially brother to brother, there is always going to be competition, but the Eudys let this competitive nature motivate them to climb stronger. Daniel’s climbing inspiration is his brother Cody, because “I get so motivated/jealous when he sends a route I haven’t gotten. But other than that, most stories involved Cody... motivating me to progress to the next climbing grade.” Cody uses climbing as “an escape from everything” and a way to “have a good time no matter what”. For Cody, his brother Daniel, as well as his friends, inspire him the most, or just in general when he sees someone nail a move they’ve been working.
Come visit the Eudy Brothers at our next Aiguille After Dark or just around the gym! I guarantee that you’ll have a great bouldering sesh and a lot of fun!
