In Their Words: “I’ve been in involved in the climbing community along the Front Range for more years of my life than not at this point, ranging from writing guidebooks to helping start local nonprofit climbing organizations, including the Boulder Climbing Community (BCC). I have always loved creating something for others and improving upon things that are already out there, whether that’s been a guidebook or gear or whatever. This climbing gym is the evolution, or perhaps culmination of all of that. We’re really excited to have a communal space where people feel cared for and taken care of as well as we look forward to trying to help push the industry forward, however that may look. Bottom line is that I’ve lived here for decades and never plan to leave. The climbing community at large is my tribe and I wanted to both do what I could to give back to it, as well as create a lasting place people can gather at.”
