Kai Oguchi

Kai has been climbing for 6 years, spending 3 of those working with intro programs for youth climbers. While his current climbing motivation is outdoors, he has a passion for climbing movement anywhere he can find, leading him to become a junior route setter at Coulee. He is eager to share this passion with younger climbers and help them discover more about their own climbing.

Ava has been climbing for 10 years and climbed competitively with LCC for 5 of those. She is excited to now be a coach and to work with kids who have the same passion that she does.
