Ben Wilcox - Route Setter


Ben has been a setter for a decade, with experience in gyms all over Ontario. He has set youth and adult completions, and loves bouldering and route climbing equally. His psyche for Ontario’s outdoor climbing scene hasn’t decreased in his years of climbing, and you’ll find him spending the summer months whipping off routes at crags across the province.


Kat is our Youth Programming Coordinator. Kat has been climbing for 4 years and her enthusiasm for the sport is quite apparent from the moment you meet her. Kat dove into the sport head first, fully integrating herself into the community and absorbing all the knowledge she could. Kat has two kiddos of her own and loves to spend all her time outdoors, a perfect complement to climbing. Kat’s favorite type of climbing is anything outdoors at one of our local crags.
