  • Sean McColl, Champion Rock Climber

Sean McColl is a world-class athlete and a humble warrior of the soul.

Sean McColl, Humble Warrior

Sean McColl
Humble Warrior

Sean McColl is one of the best. Verily, Sean may be the best. Sean McColl has competed in over 100 World Cup Rock Climbing competitions (our olympics) and has won multiple of these competitions in both categories; Sport climbing and bouldering (see videos below for differences.) Sean is a training guru and has a wildly popular YouTube channel (see link below.) Sean is a happy-go-lucky competitor with a fierce drive to be the best that has made him, well, the best. Rivaled by only a select few in the upper echelons of the Rock Climbing world, Sean discusses his approach to his climbing and life in this revealing Wolfpack Ninja Podcast interview.

American Ninja Warrior was a natural extension of Sean’s pursuits of excellence with only one minor problem: He’s Canadian. He always watched and dreamed of being able to compete on the Show. He finally got his chance when approached for a spot on Team Europe over the last two seasons. Sean shocked everyone out of the blue with his amazing rookie performance on the very difficult stage 2 of Midoriyama (see video below for Sean’s amazing debut run!) Although climbers have known and revered Sean for many years, suddenly his talents could suddenly be seen by a broader audience.

Sean discusses his training, his mental approach and his thoughts about American ninja Warrior specifics in this awesome interview. He also reveals some things you might not know like his passion for gaming and his disciplined approach to diet and nutrition. Sean is a driven character and he is still young at 27 years old. Already on top of the world in competition, Sean seems like the kind of guy that can accomplish just about anything he sets his mind to. He is unafraid of failure and dedicated to self-improvement in the way only a true ninja can be. We salute you, Sean McColl, you are truly a Ninja’s Ninja.

    wow it is hard to believe that Isaac will not be there to defend his title on ANW8. Where can I see that statement?

      It is hard to believe, but Ninja training does take a TON of time and the show environment can be stressful. Also, Isaac DID accomplish what he set out to do! As a founding Wolfpack member, we support his decision to chiilax with the $1,000,000 and rock climb all over the world living the dream! He earned it! You can listen to the statement on the podcast, but there is no written statement (other than text) in this electronic day and age. Thanks for the comment, Jack! What do others think? PLEASE COMMENT and we will answer! Thank you everyone! Aroooo!

Also, I have a question and hope you guys will answer it (on the podcast): What is the prize of Team Ninja Warrior? I really hope that you guys weren’t only competing for the title? Was there another cash prize on the line?

    I’ve been thinking about the Geoff /Isaac conundrum. I think the situation can be resolved by adding one word… Geoff is the First American Ninja Warrior (based on the sound FA argument) and Isaac is the First American Ninja Warrior *Champion*. Problem solved! ????

      EASEY PEASY! haha there are definitely multiple sides to the argument and there are a great many who agree with you, Allegra! In truth, it is a real question mark and a tough one that can easily have people taking sides; that is not the intention… At the end of the day it is clear that they are BOTH champions and BOTH true American Ninja Warriors!!! Thanks so much for the comment! What do others think?

      Thanks for the comment, AusNinja, you are absolutely right about Sean. Sean McColl is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth guys around and a true champion through and through. Definitely an inspiration.

    PLEASE get an interview with Travis Rosen. When they competed, it looked like they were brothers, just with one 20 years older! To me that made Travis Rosen’s achievement even more impressive.

      Ira! Thank you! TRAVIS ROSEN IS AMAZING! He is still one of the top dogs, and he only seems to be getting better! He has come and trained with us at our Wolf Den and he is a super cool guy with a wonderful family. We have a lot to learn from him and he is high on the list for WOLFPACK NINJA PODCAST guests! Thanks so much and keep the good vibes going!
