Joe Kinder

Sending Bone Tomahawk

BD Athlete Joe Kinder has been in the game since the late 1990’s, and when it comes to sheer numbers, he is prolific. Since 2000, he’s logged roughly 200 5.14 redpoints, but perhaps Kinder’s greatest gift is his eye for establishing first ascents. From Spain to the desert southwest, he’s bolted and sent modern day testpieces. So after years of searching and perfecting his craft, Kinder finally discovered his king line—Bone Tomahawk.
