Joel loves to be asked questions about climbing, so if you see him around the gym, feel free to say hello!
Robert is our lead instructor for the youth classes at CLIMB Woodlands. His first experience with climbing was 3 years ago in Arizona and has loved the sport ever since. Robert quickly grew to enjoy bouldering, but soon found a new love for heights when he moved to The Woodlands. He realized the sense of motivation that climbing gave him to reach his goals, and wanted to assist in guiding other prospective climbers looking to benefit from the sport in the way he has. Robert has gained his lead climbing certification and continues to cultivate his knowledge in traditional climbing daily.
