Hana Skirkey – General Manager
Hana has been working for CRG since 2011, when the Hadley location opened. She started working at the front desk part-time while nannying after graduating from UMass Amherst. Her favorite part of working here (and being a part of the climbing community) is meeting all types of people that come in. There isn’t a day that goes by where she doesn’t get to laugh and smile at work!
Hana started climbing outside as a kid, and still loves to climb outdoors. Her favorite places to climb are in North Conway, NH and in the Adirondacks. Her other hobbies include anything outside! Mountian biking, whitewater kayaking, skiing, hiking, canoeing, and camping. (Also: knitting, crocheting, and cooking!)
Andy Sunskis – Manager
Andy started climbing in 2001. He attended the Outdoor Leadership Program at Greenfield Community College, and since then has worked as a rock climbing guide/instructor in North Conway, New Hampshire, as a rafting guide in Maine and Massachusetts, and most recently, here at Central Rock Gym (he started when there was only ONE gym in Worcester!)
In his spare time he enjoys climbing, riding his bike on Earls Trails and at Thunder Mountain Bike Park, whitewater kayaking, canoeing, camping, campfires, hockey, ice climbing, fishing, boating, and enjoying the many micro-brews in New England.
Brian Clark – Youth Team Head Coach
If you need to know anything about Brian, it’s his passion for fitness and health. While he enjoys climbing and other forms of exercise, his background and heart is in track and field. You can most often find him in the gym, coaching, working out, or eating pizza.
Brian Adams – Head Route Setter
Brian hails from Portland, Oregon where he has spent the last 10 years setting and coaching in the Pacific Northwest. In his setting he strives to create not only routes that everyone can enjoy, but also provide a challenge for all climbers no matter how experienced they may be. During his off time, Brian enjoys playing all kinds of games, sleeping in with his cat and going on climbing and other outdoor adventures.
