Jared Current, a Junior at MSU works at the center and climbs the rock wall at least once everyday. Current has been working at the MSU rock wall for a couple of years. In his free time he also likes to climb at other indoor gyms and outdoors at rocks, boulders, mountains, and a climbing place called Movement.

Katie Wolf works at the gym front desk. Wolf is a senior at MSU and she mostly only climbs at this college. She has been working here seen February. When she works, she mostly just supervises, rather than helping out on the rock wall. Also, when she climbs, she usually does not use the ropes.
