A Day in the Life: The six things to know about working at a climbing gym

A Day in the Life: The six things to know about working at a climbing gym

1. The climbing gym is your oyster, but damn sometimes you get tired of seafood

Working in a climbing gym seems super awesome because you get to work at a place you LOVE, but sometimes it takes some of the magic out of climbing. We're always looking forward to getting a climbing sesh in after our shift — but sometimes after eight hours of orientations and birthday parties, even the thought of staying another five minutes sends us into fits of PTSD. Luckily after a closing shift, we can have the whole gym to ourselves!

Jarrett's been working at Summit Dallas before it was even Summit Dallas! Lucky for us he stuck around after Summit bought Dallas Rocks and turned it into Summit Dallas. He is a super enthusiastic guy, that can always be spotted doing something active - he runs and parkours before his shifts, and can often be seen bouncing a soccer ball behind the desk. Even on his off-days, his favorite thing to do is play basketball video games, because even in his leisure time he's gotta be competing or participating in something.
