Jonny Bolton

Head of Programming & Instruction

Born in the Lake District in England, Jonny has been involved in the outdoors since before he could walk; whether it was hiking mountains, immersed in water or climbing anything, he has a passion for adventure-sports. After spending a few summers working as a climbing specialist for Camp Wise in Chardon, OH, he realized he wanted to turn his passion for the outdoors into a career.

Jonny has since worked all over the world, from climbing in Spain to camping in Australia and has spent the last 6 years in Scotland working as a multi discipline outdoor instructor. He has enjoyed taking people hiking, whitewater rafting, canoeing and kayaking in the Scottish Highlands. The last three years Jonny has worked as a climbing instructor at Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, the largest indoor climbing center in the world.

When he’s not climbing Jonny likes to hang out with his fiancée Lucy (a Shaker native) and their dog Fluff-ball (also a Shaker native). Jonny is looking forward to climbing with you all.
