Igneous Rock Gym

Management Summary

Igneous Rock Gym will use a combination of paid hourly staff and volunteers. Cole Granite will use his extensive experience in the climbing gym industry to manage the day to day affairs of Igneous Rock Gym.  In addition, we will hire four part-time, hourly staff members. Volunteers will be used to offset needs in route setting, kids programs, and groups.

The climbing gym industry enjoys a high rate of qualified applicants and volunteers. Potential employees are drawn by the lifestyle and atmosphere of climbing gyms. They also enjoy the added bonus of being able to pro deal equipment at a significant discount. This allows gyms to keep employees happy without having to pay high wages.
