Reggie Goldkuhl

Reggie
Reggie fell in love with climbing on the sticky sandstone of Southern Illinois. “Out of the 10 years that have passed since, only the last 2 have been spent pulling plastic. I’ve been a part of the Riveter’s setting crew since we opened in 2020 and have been coaching our competitive team for about the same time. Much of my coaching is informed by movement and technique I’ve learned through creating puzzles for climbers to navigate. I also pull from a lot of mindset work that I’ve employed through my outdoor experience. I love competing in almost any form because it encourages me to dig deep and try my hardest.”
