Jamie (he/him)Desk Staff
Meet Jamie. A cool, quiet dude, he’s pretty new to the climbing world but enjoys it to the max. He grew up playing multiple sports like basketball, track and field, and football. You might say he’s a fitness enthusiast willing to try different things. He’s currently studying kinesiology at City College of San Francisco.
Tiffany (she/her)Desk Staff/Coach
Once upon a time, Tiffany was a mermaid. However, she wanted to be where the climbers were and be part of that world. So she gave up her mermaid tail for climber’s grip strength and heel-hooking capabilities. Fortunately, her colorful mermaid hair is still full of magic. (That’s actually how she gets up the walls.) You can usually find her at Dogpatch coaching her group of little minions or playing on the new sets at the gym. When she’s not at the gym, she’s probably at the beach or hiking to the beach. If you see her, don’t be afraid to say hello!
Savannah (she/her)Desk Staff
20 years ago, Savannah’s dad used to wait until 1pm on Saturdays to drive to Mission Cliffs when he knew she’d fall asleep on the way. Two hours later she’d wake up in her car seat facing bouldering problems in the cave. After a long overdue reacquaintance with climbing in 2018, the two of them can be found pushing each other most weekends at Dogpatch. When she manages to limit her time off the ground, Savannah enjoys improving her coordination through roller skating and trying to keep up with Allan Frias’s choreo.
Niel (he/him)Desk Staff
Niel recently moved back to SF from Oahu a few months ago. He traded in the warm Hawaiian sun, and beautiful beaches for the good ol’ fog and frigid waters of the Bay Area. When he’s not bouldering, he enjoys riding his fixed gear bike around the city and hiking the beautiful trails of California. Laid back dude, who loves to get outside and enjoy all nature has to offer.
Esto (he/him)Desk Staff
Born and raised in Davis, Ca a small little farm town where the cows roam free. Soccer was his steez all throughout his life up until college. After falling out of soccer, climbing slowly started taking over his life. It all started in Sacramento Pipeworks, where getting over his fear of heights was his first feat, then it was finally his first V0…. Besides climbing, walking his dog and going on adventures with her is what he does best. If he’s not at Dogpatch Boulders, he’s with his dog.
Hannah (she/her)Desk Staff
Hannah started climbing in 2017 as a freshman in college and has been ever since in LA, Chicago, and Colorado before making her way to SF post-grad. Being new to the city, she jumped at the opportunity to work at Dogpatch as a means of getting involved with the climbing community and making new friends in the city. Besides climbing, she spends her time working on her other job doing research on Antarctic ice sheet melt, in addition to cooking, going to concerts, traveling, hiking, and eating her way through SF’s restaurant scene.
Natalie (she/her)Desk Staff
Recently relocated from Los Angeles, Natalie is new to San Francisco and stoked to climb all that the area has to offer. Dogpatch Boulders was the very first place she climbed, making it nothing short of appropriate that she wound up back here. When she isn’t climbing, you may stumble upon her upside down practicing yoga, or right side up writing an article. When she finishes school in a few years, she hopes to begin her first multi-pitch and sport climb outside as much as her fingers will allow.
Jacob (he/him)Desk Staff
Having discovered climbing this year, Jacob wanted to immerse himself in the climbing community, so working at Dogpatch boulders was an easy decision for him. Jacob is also a full-time graduate student at SFSU working on earning his master’s degree in psychological research. When he isn’t studying or working the front desk you can find him on the wall or on a hike.
