For nature-loving thrill seekers, there are few activities more captivating than the sport of rock climbing. Naturally, ‘The Climb‘ has easily created a huge fanbase given its exciting premise, talented participants, and awe-inspiring mentors. Given the zeal with which the climbers try to prove their mettle by attempting to beat some of the most challenging routes, it is easy to see why they might have so many admirers.

One of the most popular competitors of the HBO Max production is none other than Dominique “Dom” Terrill Barry, who bagged the second position in the first iteration of the reality series. Needless to say, people are eager to know what he is up to these days, and we are here to answer the same!

Dom Terrill Barry’s The Climb Journey

Dom entered the first season of ‘The Climb’ to showcase to the world exactly what he could do in the world of rock climbing. Though he was not able to complete the very first route on the show, his performance did keep him away from the bottom 2 positions, keeping him safe from elimination. As the competition progressed, Dom was determined to keep his cool and not let any height, adversity, or apparent failure bother him.

Slowly but surely, Dom made his way forward into the competition, though his journey was not all smooth. That being said, he never did become a part of the bottom 2 until the fifth round. However, due to Tiffany Soithongsuk’s Covid-19 quarantine, this particular round of challenges was not meant for eviction. This meant that Dom was safe from elimination. In the next round of climbs, which would lead to the elimination of two climbers, Tiffany had to leave after the main route itself, while Dom and Decco had to go head-to-head in the elimination challenge.

Thanks to his performance and determination, Dom was able to stay in the competition. In the penultimate episode, he was teamed with Alice Hafer for the multi-pitch round. While their work was nothing short of impressive, the two still faced each other in the speed climbing round. Dom was, once again, safe from eviction and remained in competition as one of the top 3 performers. Soon enough, Dom and Cat Runner were the only people remaining, and they gave their best to become the winners. Even though Dom did not win the competition, he was pretty thankful for the experience and congratulated Cat on his victory.

Additionally, it seems like his performance in the show has also helped him land many sponsorships, including Chevrolet and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
