As a life long local, Tim is deeply passionate about our Valley and its community. His love of the mountains has driven him to pursue the conservation of these extraordinary places we share. With a background in education and nearly twenty years of climbing experience, his motivation to preserve our climbing areas, not just for current users, but for all of those who will come after, is a fundamental part of who he is.

Upon making the Eagle valley his permanent home in 2009 he has continued to share his passion for the outdoors with the greater community around him. With a background in outdoor education and community-based health care Joe understands the importance of keeping climbing areas safe and accessible to all.

David began rock climbing in the Boulder area in 1988 and has since climbed both ice and rock in Eagle County for nearly thirty years. He has spent close to 20 years teaching and guiding both rock and ice climbing including coaching the elite team at Eagle Climbing + Fitness. Over the years, he has watched the local climbing areas become more popular and feels strongly that this growth should be properly managed so that both current and future users can experience the beauty of our surrounding areas like they were 30 years ago. Climbing has given David so much in life and as a board member of the Eagle County Climbing Coalition, he is excited for yet another chance to give back to our community. He hopes to pass on his love of climbing and his respect for the wonderful climbing resources in and around Eagle County.
Devin first began climbing in Joshua Tree and Southern Arizona, before moving to Boulder for grad school. After a series of veteran ice climbing programs in Montana, and climbing in the Boulder area, Devin quickly found a new appreciation for the sport. With a deep passion for the outdoors and wildlife, Devin looks forward to contributing to the local climbing community with an emphasis on maintaining the aesthetic, appropriately managing growth, and caring for the places we hold dear.
