Our Instructor: Chuy Vidaurri

I started climbing while studying Biology and Neuroscience at Indiana University. I was immediately hooked and have now been climbing consistently for close to 10 years. I am interested and well read in training for climbing and have been setting for the last 5 years. However, I'd say my biggest passion is sharing this sport that I love with other people. I am here to help you meet your goals, please reach out to me if you have any questions!
