• Diane (she/her)

    Manager

    Diane began with Touchstone in the summer of 2005 at Sacramento Pipeworks—she spent six years working at the desk there and will always consider it her “home” gym. From Pipeworks she made the move to the South Bay to manage The Studio in the beginning of 2012. After seven years of good times, she made yet another move in 2019 to Dogpatch Boulders.

    As much as she loves her gym, work is not everything to her: Diane also enjoys traveling, tennis, lifting, and all things food- and drink-related. If you ever want to swap recipes or fight over which style of BBQ is best, be sure to come to chat her up!

  • Ryan (he/him)

    Desk Staff

    Ryan joined Touchstone in 2007 to feed his climbing addiction. He holds an AA in theology and a BS in geology, but one day hopes to become a stone master. When he isn’t climbing the glorious walls inside a Touchstone gym, you can find him mountaineering, dancing ballet, completing triathlons or training for more climbing.

  • Ryan (he/him)

    Desk Staff

    When Ryan was a kid, he promised himself that he would be Superman, a pirate, Bruce Wayne, or a firefighter when he grew up.  He doesn’t plan on backing out of that promise. When Ryan was 3 he made his first million and when he was 10 he owned an empire of businesses.  You can mostly find him in the gym working or in the gym climbing or just in the gym.  Right now climbing is his life and he just wants to climb everything!

  • Courtney (she/her)

    Desk Staff

    Courtney began climbing in 2012 and has spent the last few years falling in love with boulder fields around the southeastern US. Having recently moved to California, it’s time for her to take on bigger walls, as well as her fear of heights! She is beyond ecstatic to join the Touchstone Climbing community. Outside of climbing, Courtney is a printmaker, aerialist, and yoga instructor.

  • Hana (she/her)

    Desk Staff

    Hana is a Sacramento native who is currently enrolled at Sacramento State, majoring in International Relations and Economics. She was introduced to climbing by her cousin and fell in love with it ever since. She prefers top roping over bouldering and is still learning to lead climb.

  • Corey (he/him)

    Desk Staff

    Corey came to California nearly a decade ago to pursue his calling as a beekeeper. Along the way, he fell more in love with the granite walls of the Sierras and developed more back pain. He decided to leave the bee world in order to have more time to climb, book-learn, and eat cheeseburgers.

  • Tony (he/him)

    Desk Staff

    Tony started climbing in 2013 and fell in love with the amazing places, experiences, and people that climbing brought into his life. His favorite areas include Lover’s Leap, Moab, Red Rock, and Bishop. He loves being on the road with a car packed full of friends and climbing gear; or riding mountain bikes, trying to pet your dog, or eating Thai food.

  • Colton (he/him)

    Desk Staff

    After throwing in the towel on being the world’s foremost expert on platypus herding…Colton has decided to take on a new venture, climbing! He started climbing at Slo-Op in San Luis Obispo (yes, he knows Joe)! and soon fell in love with the sport. He loves sharing that stoke with anyone who is willing to hang off the side of a mountain with him. When Colton is not at the gym, he enjoys whitewater rafting, bike packing, making art, and sewing.

  • Haley (she/her)

    Desk Staff

    As a Sacramento native Haley’s climbing career started right here at Sacramento Pipeworks!
