Chris is a vocal climber, known for occasionally letting conversation continue on through the crux of a difficult problem. It’s something to work on. When he’s not here at the gym you may find him hustling coffee or studying for his psychology degree. His other favorite pastime is sleeping in until noon. Chris grew up around Chinatown after moving here from China at 8 years old.
Stef has been holding it down at Dogpatch Boulders since 2014. She would have you believe she is the “World’s Okayest Mom,” but that doesn’t do her justice at all. Stef is a phenomenal mom, she’s a hard worker, has a sly sense of humor, a discerning (side-)eye behind the lense, is always down for a good meal, and she absolutely crushes in the weight room. Basically a total badass.
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.
JenDesk StaffWhile an elusive creature, a rare Jen can be found in the wilds of the Bay Area. Just look for her signature markings: wolf shirt, bunch of tattoos, messy hair, and outta control sock style. Once spotted, observe some classic Jen behavioral traits: slow-rollin the city on a purple bike, camera shoved in her face, searching for snacks, blasting righteous jams from behind the desk, and slappin’ plastic at your neighborhood rock gym.
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!
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.
