People of Artthaus Studios: Alex Chuong, Oaktown Boulders

“What I love about climbing is that people of all backgrounds and ability levels can come together through the sport. However, throughout my 10 years of climbing, I noticed that the people at climbing gyms didn’t always reflect the diversity that I saw in our community. I opened Oaktown Boulders because I wanted to do my part in bringing climbing to a wider group of people. Artthaus was the perfect way for me to do this—from its walking-distance location to several public schools, to the intimacy of the space where people can learn how to climb in a safe and comfortable environment. I’m really looking forward to seeing how we can continue to serve this community in the future!”
