Abby Wilson


Our newest instructor, Abby Wilson, isn’t new at all. As a Boulder local, she’s been on our youth team for years, competing in USAC including sport nationals last year. That experience makes her an excellent coach with an excellent attitude. We’re so psyched that she’s “graduated” from the youth program and is now helping train the next generation.

Why did you join the team at The Spot?
I’ve been on a climbing team for a long time, and I wanted to pass on some things I’ve learned and maybe inspire some kids to train really hard. Seeing the kids grow is super rewarding.

What do you love about working at The Spot?
My coworkers are awesome, and just the community and general. You really can’t go wrong working where you play!

Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
In five years I’ll hopefully be in grad school… or traveling the world. Who knows!

Anything else you’d like to tell folks?
If anyone needs any good taco recommendations… let me know!
