Harry Berking – General Manager
Harry hails from Rochester, NY, where he developed an appreciation for the outdoors adventuring and travelling with his parents and two younger brothers. After a number of years working for Eastern Mountain Sports and as a whitewater kayaking instructor, he’s excited to join CRG and share his love for climbing! Like so many others, Harry’s first taste of climbing was at a climbing gym, and they’re now his home away from home. He’s been climbing for 8 years now, and absolutely loves getting on long multi-pitch routes up huge walls! When he’s not pulling on climbing shoes, you might catch him on the river in his whitewater kayak, or clicking into skis for a powder lap.
Susie Janik – Assistant Manager
Susie went from being an investigator for NYC while living in Manhattan to working on a farm living in a cabin. CRG balances things out where her love for an active lifestyle melds with her desire to help people. Susie has been climbing with CRG since 2009, but really got into climbing in 2016 after her first outdoor climb in the Gunks, NY. Her most notable accomplishment was being heckled by Tommy Caldwell’s kids while bouldering in Yosemite. When she’s not climbing, she’s definitely doing handstands, running, hiking, baking, eating ice cream, and frolicking in the ocean.
