Jon Ratcliffe, Owner & Operator
Jon has been running Indy Climbing Wall for longer than he would like to admit first as climbing wall manager before taking over as the Owner. During this time he has transformed the climbing wall from a Military facility to the friendly, caring, sharing environment it is today. As well as running the wall Jon coaches with the NWYCA, and is a local activist in most climbing disciplines.
