About Me: Ever since my introduction to climbing in 2006, my life has basically revolved around climbing. I have worn almost every hat the company has had to offer me. From Head Coach to Head Routesetter and finally to Facility Manager. And when I am not working at the gym I am usually climbing or wishing I was climbing while I fight through busy life and an onslaught of injuries. And sometimes I get tricked/berated into setting routes by the climbers.
