A tough climb behind him, Ross awarded top prize
His first-place trophy in hand, Ross Fulkerson of Portola Valley enjoyed the moment after his victory in a national climbing-wall competition in Atlanta over July 4-7. Balance is key in climbing sports and Ross has it. He was climbing redwood trees at 4 and riding a unicycle to school in the second grade, his mother said. Photo by Photo Bob
