Route setters are part artist, part technician, part super hero.

The First Ascent Setting Crew works hard every day to provide you with fresh new challenges every time you visit the gym.IMG_7450 We strive to set high quality routes and boulder problems that feature fun, thought-provoking movement for all ability levels.

Each of our setters brings a unique background and skillset to creating climbing movement beyond their outdoor climbing experience.  Our crew includes a gymnast, an artist, a musician, a ballerina, a philosopher, and more. Read more about the setters on our team below!
