Supervisor

I love climbing and the community that comes with it. The sport of climbing requires you to push yourself to new levels mentally and physically and I have seen improvements in all areas of my life because of this constant search for improvement. I am super excited to be a part of this new chapter in Oklahoma climbing. We have state of the art facilities and genuinely good folks on staff here that love sharing their passion for the sport. There is something for every level of climber, which is so awesome. I can't wait to see everyone's faces when they step foot in the doors for the first time!

Head Coach & Head Route Setter

Trying to pinpoint what I love most about climbing seems impossible. I know that it gives my health and wellness direction, it continues to teach me how to deal with failure, takes me to places I otherwise would not go and surrounds me with an outgoing and active group of people who have become close friends. Climbing forces me to be physically and mentally strong in order to push my limits. I hope to show the community an up-and-coming sport and its abilities to provide them with enjoyable and impactful experiences through quality instruction and route-setting; all the while developing a culture they want to be a part of.

Chris Yates

Chris Yates

AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor & Route Setter

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.

Staff

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.
