Shannon started climbing in 2007 after she graduated from UC Santa Cruz. Bouldering is her passion, but she’s trying to get into leading more. If she isn’t at the gym, she’s probably swimming or riding her new dirt bike, Rufio. Shannon loves all outdoor activities, and trying new sports.
Don’t be fooled by that shy grin… Fortune is a stone cold crusher. If you want her respect you’ll have to hold a hand stand for at least 20 minutes.
You can typically find Brynn teaching Crossfit classes during the week and behind the front desk on weekends. Brynn is also a talented graphic artist and is behind some of the CoCo and DRG clothing and promotional items. When she’s not working, she’s either still doing crossfit, climbing a wall, or on a camping trip in the middle of nowhere. She loves the community here at Diablo Rock Gym and considers it her second home.
Conner has grown up in Diablo Rock Gym – and we think we’ve raised him right.
