Aerik Johnson


Aerik entered the world of climbing in a different way than most. In 2013, he started working for Outdoor
Escape building custom climbing walls all over the United States. Although he had no prior experience with
climbing, he soon began to fall in love with climbing. He has since climbed outdoors in several states, including
California, Colorado, and Oklahoma. Aerik has been with CLIMB Woodlands from the beginning, from building the
walls to teaching our private lessons. In his free-time, he pursues his passion for writing, producing, and performing
original music, and enjoys spending time with his fur babies and fiance.

Zoe Wilburn


In late 2017, shortly after the opening of CLIMB Woodlands, Zoe was asked to help with social media marketing at the gym.
Her passion for the gym to succeed and new found love of climbing led her to join the gym full-time in January 2018. Since then,
she has been managing the facility, coordinating all parties, events, and assisting in climbing classes. Her goal for CLIMB
Woodlands is to bring the climbing community closer to home, and to show our local youth that rock climbing is a fascinating,
fun sport of its own. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her fur babies and family.
