The man. The Myth. The Legend. 


Ashley got her start at The Studio Climbing, our gym in San Jose. Now we're lucky enough to have her in the big city! Be sure to ask her about her climbing clinics!

 DB Hocevar-Smith_Alex_DeskStaff
Alex, a Bay Area native, is currently finishing up his BA in philosophy at UC Berkeley. He loves (in no particular order) re-building and riding motorcycles, camping, backpacking, hiking, running, bouldering!, road trips, the California coast, redwood trees, being alive, and changing his facial hair because he can. He spends so much time climbing at the Touchstone gyms and out around the Bay that his roommates often wonder if he's skipped town or moved out. And, he's allegedly kind of a coffee snob.

This guy is a man of many talents. Need some homemade pasta? Done. Want a cabinet made? Please. Want a great spotter, a friendly face and an amazing friend? He's your guy.

He's new, he's awesome, and he's far too cool for a bio. 


Bay Area native, computer language/web dev nerd, dj/producer, and bicycle aficionado with an addiction to climbing. When he’s not testing his own limits on a bouldering problem or working at Dogpatch Boulders and Mission Cliffs, he can be found working on his next web application, producing a new tune or programming a new mix.You might even see him riding around the city or hanging out at the park with the Dope Pedalers Bicycle Club.
