Joan is a LA native, who recently moved back home after having worked as front desk staff and fitness instructor at Berkeley Ironworks, where she learned how to climb, flag, and flooge from the great Scott Frye, and worked with the most awesome folks (Wassup my BIW peeps!). But now, she’s back at Touchstone with her new LA.B family and is stoked about working on her flagging & flooging and fattening her coworkers up with baked goods. These days, you will find her at her beloved box, Crossfit Provoke, devouring up WODS only to vomit them back up with sweat and tears, after which she will spoon it back into her mouth because she is sick like that. She loves all things that make you stronger and faster except anabolic steroids and PCP. Oh, she also has an unexplained attraction to tractors.
Grayston is a Los Angeles local raised on the sandy shores of Santa Monica. He discovered his passion for climbing during his time in Portland, Oregon, where he earned his BA in Religious Studies. His hobbies other than climbing include animation, thinking about Michael Jordan and his many accomplishments, archery, horseback riding, and reading.
Ryan is our resident greaser. In between his daily hair cuts, you can find him trolling Little Tokyo for a hot cup of ramen or tattooing his chest with Hello Kitty characters. His climbing ability is eclipsed only by his number of Instagram followers. If you can't find him at the desk, he's in the back stuffing his face with cronuts.
What can we say about Noah? He's a gentleman, a scholar, a setter, a one-handed mantler. Sometimes mistaken for a much paler version of some guy you met once, Noah prides himself on his ability to down flavor-blasted goldfish like a college kid at a kegger. You can find him on the wall crushing harding than you could ever dream as his skin changes from light alabaster to a deep crimson, and being the best damn setter this side of the Mississippi.
