Retail Buyer and Accounts Payable Manager

Joey is our Retail Buyer and Accounts Payable Manager. After college, Joey relocated to Colorado to explore the outdoors and shortly thereafter found climbing. When he decided to leave his desk job, it was only natural that he found working at a climbing gym to be the perfect balance between his love for number crunching and the challenges found in climbing. Joey is most excited to meet the Whetstone community and build a ‘home away from home’ feel that only a climbing gym can create.


Originally a Texas native, Josh found his way to the wonderful town of Fort Collins in 2012 and quickly began pursuing his passion for climbing. He has spent time in all climbing disciplines and has worked as a guide, however; he has happily found his favorite style to be bouldering, specifically spending long days in the alpine at Rocky Mountain National Park repeating his favorite lines for the 100th time or getting humbled on new projects.
Expanding his climbing family is also one of Josh’s passions.  He loves meeting and conversing with new climbers at the crag and enjoys hearing about other people’s passions and goals; even if you only see him once a year he will likely remember you and be excited to hear about how you’ve been since. Outside of climbing, Josh is pursuing a degree at CSU and has recently taken up winter sports.
