Instructor Highlight: Miles McGehee
Climbing. Community. Health and Wellness. Education.
These are the 4 pillars that define the Hive, and help us make decisions and it’s what we always return to.
Our education team works so hard to bring the five-star experience by providing you with tools to take your climbing to the next level. As we begin our courses again, we wanted to shine a little light on the instructors that really give our courses something special. If you’ve ever taken a course with us, you’ll know that our instructors really give our offerings something special, and as we begin our courses again we wanted to shine a light on the instructors who bring that extra little bit to our Education pillar.
