Tonde Katiyo is a well-known international route-setter prominent on our local climbing scene. He has helped set routes at major competitions in Singapore, such as Gravical, Pumpfest and Boulderactive. In July this year, he was the guest route-setter for NUS Boulderactive and conducted route-setting courses for the local climbers and route-setters.
