Jason has been climbing for more years than not at this point. His passion for climbing has evolved over the years, but he will always have a soft spot for putting up new routes via chossy adventure climbing in remote areas.
Nowadays he spends most of his free time camping, climbing, and backpacking with his two small kids, as he and his wife try to instill them with a love for the outdoors.
Hi I’m Bryan! I’m originally from Fort Worth, Texas where I found climbing in 2010. I eventually started working at my local gym while finishing up school at the University of North Texas where I got my bachelors in Recreation Management. After college I got an internship at Yellowstone National Park where I basically just took people hiking all the time which was amazing. After my internship I moved home and got a General Manager position at the Summit Climbing Gyms in the Dallas area. Any time I had off I would try to find any way to go to new and unique climbing areas where I’ve been anywhere from El Portrero, Mexico to Kalymnos, Greece. Ive recently moved to Colorado to join the G1 team and couldn’t be more excited to be apart of the growth of this community!
Taylor started climbing in 2016 and has been in love with the sport ever since. She received her Bachelors in Recreation, Sports Leadership & Tourism Management from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Her favorite thing about rock climbing is the people and the lifelong friendships that come with them. She is super excited to play a role in the programs that build the community. When not climbing, you can find Taylor hiking, doing yoga, or petting the nearest dog.
Jill discovered climbing later in life but for her it was love at first callus! She likes the continuous learning and evolving that comes with progression in the sport.
She loves teaching new climbers and enjoys helping them develop their skills.
When Jill isn’t at G1 or climbing somewhere she can found hiking with her dog, skiing, stand up paddle boarding, horseback riding, reading or traveling.

Head Coach & Routesetter
Isaac started climbing in Las Vegas, NV, as a 12-year-old sixth grader, and has been consumed by the sport ever since. After getting his start washing holds in exchange for a membership at a gym as a high school freshman, Isaac was eventually led to his passions of route setting, and later coaching. Nowadays he couldn’t tell you which he love more, just that both pursuits allow him to share the beauty of climbing with others.
He spends his weekends developing boulders and trying to repeat the many hard climbs that Colorado and the mountain west have to offer.
Front Desk and Recreation Coach
Karson grew up in Kentucky and started climbing a few years ago at the Red River Gorge. After spending two summers living in Estes Park, Colorado and working as a climbing camp counselor, Karson grew very interested in the idea of continuing to share all their passion and stoke for rock climbing with those interested, particularly kiddos. With a dream of moving to Colorado permanently and working as a youth climbing instructor again, Karson is thrilled to have become a part of the G1 team coaching the Pebbles!
Front Desk and Intern Routesetter

Abby is stoked to be on the G1 team and to be apart of such a welcoming and encouraging community.
Competitive Youth/Adult Coach and Private Instructor
Jeff started climbing at the age of 5 in Southern California. In his early teens, he became obsessed with climbing and has basically been living in climbing gyms ever since. Working with climbers of all different levels and ages has been one of the greatest joys of his life.
In August of 2020, Jeff will be starting his Masters in Somatic Counseling at Naropa University where he will be learning additional psychological tools to help support the climbers that he works with.
Maya has been climbing since middle school, and has been an active community leader ever since. Originally from Seattle, WA, she moved to Colorado to pursue Mechanical Engineering (and rock climbing…) at CU Boulder just over three years ago. Between her job as a youth coach and as President of the CU Climbing Team, you can find her at G1 most evenings. In her free time, Maya is usually guaranteed to be found outside, often doing what she loves best- climbing boulders.
Hank began climbing in the spring of 2012 in South California and has been obsessed ever since. Hank specialized in competition climbing on the USA Climbing youth circuit and has attended more than 10 USA Climbing National Championship events, whether Youth, Open, or Collegiate. To Hank, coaching is a way for him to share his love for the sport with next generation of climbers. When not on the wall, you can find Hank attending CU Boulder as a Political Science major. He hopes that someday he will be able to make a positive difference in the world.
Sean is a lover of the indoor gym. G1 had been a home away from home before the pandemic, so when all was lost, climb on!
While newer than most to the climbing scene, he has found friendship, encouragement, and community at G1. If you ever need an intro class or a belay, happy to help is the head that wears the hat.
Sean will always be a resource to those who only ask; he is just happy to be here.
