Chris Yates

Head Coach & AMGA certified Instructor

I am a simplicated man, a proud Uncle of four who started climbing over 4,500 days ago. I believe climbing discovered me to my first iteration of minimalist living as an actualized truth and has led to a view of climbing as an authentic expression of the dichotomous human condition, one that is unique to each if you allow yourself to “climb on”; yet, subsequently… let go. All in all, family first, climbing always.

Ty Hutchins

Head Route Setter & AMGA certified Instructor

I've been climbing for four years and found my passion for setting routes a little over a year ago. I'm psyched on Threshold because I'm excited for the opportunities it will bring the people and me to improve in climbing. Also for the growth of the climbing community and to see were the people will take it!

Hunter Nipper

Hunter Nipper

AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor

I'm currently a staff member at Threshold but hope to get my Climbing Wall instructor training and certification through the American Mountain Guide Association as soon as possible. This will allow me to become an instructor and route setter, which is my passion. I'm personally excited to see new climbers and seasoned veterans come to the best gym in Oklahoma and achieve and exceed their goals. We also have an amazing retail shop that has become my merchandising muse, and I look forward to helping our customers pick from the latest gear that will ensure they crush their next route.
