• Justin

    Manager

    Justin is the strong, silent type who is too busy running an empire to write his own bio. Some would call it lazy, but we prefer to call it telepathic delegation. That’s next level managerial strategy right there. Justin hails from the great state of California, and when his soccer career was cut short by aging out of the pee-wee league, he turned to bouldering. He fell hard for Yosemite climbing, taking a job as a bear ranger to fund his incessant pebble wrestling. T’was beneath a boulder that he met his now wife, and she managed to drag him out of the woods and into a ‘real job’ working for a gym. We couldn’t be happier.

  • Noah

    Desk Staff

    Bay Area native, computer language/web dev nerd, dj/producer, and bicycle aficionado with an addiction to climbing. When he’s not testing his own limits on a bouldering problem or working at Dogpatch Boulders and Mission Cliffs, he can be found working on his next web application, producing a new tune or programming a new mix. You might even see him riding around the city or hanging out at the park with the Dope Pedalers Bicycle Club.

  • Eric

    Desk Staff

    Eric will not willingly eat any form of fruit from the plant family cucurbitaceae. He has a scar under the fingernail of the ring finger on his right hand. He used to play in a band that occasionally covered a Minor Threat song. Now he enjoys writing screenplays, and making films and photographs.

  • Mailee

    Desk Staff

    Mailee didn’t begin climbing seriously until the conditions were right: being unemployed after college. Getting her start at Pacific Edge in Santa Cruz and slowly making her way out onto real rock, she fell in love with the sport’s unique challenges and possibilities. Her dogged pursuit of the useless extends to many aspects of her life, including paying too much money for an MA that lets her write about cyborgs and playing Magic: the Gathering in her spare time.

  • John

    Desk Staff

    When John first walked into Dogpatch Boulders he was overwhelmed. Within minutes he asked if we were hiring and, before he new it, he joined the team. Now John splits his time between studying to become a RN, charging up to Mortar Rock, and working on his amazing muscles.

  • Eric

    Desk Staff

    Eric has been climbing for about 7 years and can’t imagine a life without it. Nothing beats the satisfaction of pulling some hard moves and standing on the top of a climb… and the beer after. He also enjoys mountaineering, bike touring, travelling, and last summer h hiked 2,700 miles on the PCT. When he’s not playing outside, he is thinking about it. In the near future, Eric would like to pursue a career in medicine and one day be a falcon. Wait…
