Josh Reyes

Ambassador, Routesetter, Coach

He has probably climbed longer than you've been alive.  Beta?  Who needs it, when you're fueled by his wife's chicken salad.  All around good guy, even better climber.

A silent crusher!  You will not catch her bragging about her latest send.  Loves all things fluffy and owns more stuffed animals than she should.

He is slightly obsessed with his FJ, monthly tattoos, and beating people in Words with Friends.  What his hair looks like is a mystery because you will always find him in a hat.
