As a kid Gareth loved to climb, so when his uncle brought him to Wilmington Rock Gym at age 12, he was instantly hooked. He has been climbing here ever since. Now he gets the opportunity to share his love for climbing with others through weekly reservations and Young Aspiring Climbers classes.

Hannah started climbing when she was 18 and living in Colorado. Her love of the water landed her in Wilmington where she found her new climbing home at Wilmington Rock Gym. Now she uses her bubbly personality and love for climbing to inspire our next generation of climbers in the Young Aspiring Climbers program. She also enjoys teaching the Intro to Top Roping Course and is learning to set routes. When she's not at the gym you can probably find her doing yoga on the beach.

Sergio Bio Pic.jpg

Sergio was introduced to climbing in Carlsbad California during his time in the Navy. What started out as a hobby on the west coast turned into a passion on the east coast, thanks to a small, family-like atmosphere right here in Wilmington Rock Gym. Since 2017, Sergio has been developing his skills as a well-rounded climber with the help of a few key mentors. His appreciation for the climbing community and those who came before him inspires his desire to give back in the form of route setting, coaching, mentoring and being a good climbing partner. He looks forward to mentoring the next generation of climbers.

“I've tried many sports, but climbing is the best. The beauty of this sport is that no matter how good you get, you can always find a way to challenge yourself.”
