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.
Justin Wright – Head Route Setter
Justin started his route-setting career in 2008. He views route setting just like playing with Legos, and who doesn’t like playing with Legos? He has always marked his routes a little differently, with a special signature. Some think it’s a space monkey, he’s even heard people call it a chicken. Most know it as the Jetpack Penguin, it’s become his legal signature at this point. Justin’s favorite places to climb include Bishop CA, Red River Gorge KY, and Stone Fort TN.
