Jon Haggerty – General Manager
Jon Haggerty has been climbing in New England for longer than he can remember. A lifetime of passion for climbing led him to a career running rock climbing facilities. As the manager of Central Rock Gym – Cambridge, Jon is now at the epicenter of Boston’s climbing scene, surrounded by all of the strongest and most psyched climbers of all disciplines in New England! Through an amazing facility, Jon is both able to introduce new climbers to an activity that has been so rewarding to him. If you have any questions about a climb either indoors or out, ask Jon, he’s likely to have some sandbagged advice for you!
Mike Grobicki – Retail Manager CRG Boston
In the fall of 2006, an after-school bouldering trip to Pawtuckaway sparked Mike’s interest in climbing, which has since grown into more of a lifestyle than a hobby. Mike joined the Central Rock team in 2016 as the retail manager for the Cambridge and Watertown gyms. Very much a gear head, he’s always willing to discuss the latest and greatest in climbing technology. When he’s not climbing, Mike can generally be found trail running or splitboarding in the mountains.
Peter Schmalzied – Head Route Setter
Peter hails from the flatlands of the Midwest and spent many college weekends on the steep jugs of the Red River Gorge. He has been climbing since 2008 and has led both beginner and advanced trips all over the country. Since 2011, he has been organizing colored plastic bits (aka Route setting) on anything from tiny home walls to the largest gyms in the country. He is the Head Route Setter for the Cambridge facility but you can find his rope climbs and boulders in Cambridge, Watertown, and Randolph. When he is not setting you’ll find him teaching private lessons, biking around Arlington, or traveling to see family!
