STAFF | climb iowa supervisor

Hello! I’m Aubrey and I have been working at Climb Iowa for close to a year now. I have been an active member of Pride groups through out my life and jumped at the chance to provide a safe, inclusive and fun environment for LGTQIA+ community members to climb and meet new people. I can’t wait to meet and interact with others of the community who share my love for climbing.
