The committee will provide advice and input on key project milestones and will promote awareness of and support for the CWA’s industry research projects.


This group was selected based on their deep working knowledge of our industry's research and data needs, their backgrounds in research, and their extensive experience working in the industry. The members of the committee provide a fair and balanced representation of CWA members and industry sectors. The committee includes climbing gym owners, gym managers, senior staff, academic researchers, wall builders, gear manufacturers, and industry experts.


We are thrilled to have such a great group supporting the CWA's industry research program. Keep an eye on our newsletter for announcements about our 2019 projects.
