• Katherine (she/her)

    Katherine hails from Miami and was raised by rad hippie immigrants from South America. She was eating tofu and alfalfa sprout sandwiches before they were cool—those are cool now, right? She moved out to California... in 2016 and never looked back. She started working the front desk at LAB in Fall 2019 and is so excited to now manage the gym
  • Nick (he/him)

    Desk Staff
    Nick hails from the distant future, having come back in time to prevent an apocalyptic reality. Turns out things are much better here, so he stuck around. He is a paragon of placidity, a champion... of both nothing and everything, and a repository of unwarranted knowledge and ideas with dreams of becoming a world-renowned supervillain. And if the legends are to believed, he once flashed a 5.8 on top rope.
  • Filemón (he/him)

    Custodial MVP
    Filemón loves hiking and is always looking for a new trail, new adventures and new friends to walk the mountains with. He’s glad to be a family member of Touchstone, and LA Boulders is his... home gym.
  • Lenard (he/him)

    Desk Staff
    A wandering nomad who has lived and been to many far and wide corners of the world from New Zealand to China to South Africa to Peru, Lenard found his way to Los Angeles. He... decided to set up camp and stay for a while. His search to find a place to call home has finally come to an end. When not at work at LAB, you can likely find him skiing and snowboarding up at Big Bear, lead climbing over at Malibu Creek, camping out at Joshua Tree, bouldering at Stoney Point, or at many of the Queer Crush events in the LA area. He loves baking delicious sweet treats, listening to all the pop queens, and taking lots of cute photos of his dogs. And if you’re ever going on a road trip, he’s always down to join.

    Jazzy, certified slab lovergirl, is a proud native of the 626 San Gabriel Valley. When she’s not climbing or speed running hikes, she’s wielding her spatula and cooking up a storm outdoors. There’s just something... about the combination of fresh air and open flames that ignites her passion for culinary creativity. And speaking of igniting passions, she has a knack for finding unbeatable deals on Ebay—turning every hunt into a thrilling adventure. Nothing beats the joy of spending quality time with friends, whether it’s exploring new trails or simply enjoying each other’s company over a shared meal. Life’s a dance floor, love is the rhythm. Let’s dance <3
