Our Community

Climbing is what brings us together!

BlocHaven is a rock climbing gym, but first and foremost it is a community. Made up of people like YOU, our dedicated crew, every single one of our members, and each person who decides to give climbing a shot, it encompasses a diverse group with similar goals: to SEND, to have some good conversation, and to get a great workout!

We believe that a community blooms when it grows and works together. For this reason, we offer a number of community programs and events year-round, including competitions, member nights, educational clinics, adult climbing leagues, youth teams, camps, yoga classes, and more. These are a targeted selection of ways to experience and help grow our community.  We hope you will join us and offer your unique qualities, too.

Thank you for supporting our community at BlocHaven!

Teri Johnson

Café Manager

Aka the lady with all the coffee and snacks!

– Nickname: Mom or Teri
– Research. I like figuring out “the rest of the story”, no matter if it’s a news report, a recycling
technology, or a cafe ingredient. I should have been a librarian. Or an FBI agent.
– I am an operatic soprano with a high D. Actually it’s not so unique, but most people
don’t expect that when they see me.
– Favorite Quote: “Set your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” – 1 Peter 1:13, the Bible.

– Nickname: Dad or Doug
– Has an addiction to lycra – the cycling kind – and loves riding indoors and out
– Packs climbing shoes and chalk bag in with his suits when traveling on business – gyms make for better business meetings
