Chris Pert is a certified AMGA Single Pitch Guide and USA Climbing Level 1 Routesetter. He was born and raised here in Maine and started climbing as a kid on the cliffs of Acadia. After completing his degree in jazz trumpet in 2005 (fun fact) he began working at a gym in Boston as Head Routesetter and climbing coach.
He has since made a career around climbing. When not at the gym, you can find Pert out running, playing the trumpet, or being a dad. Pert is allergic to avocados, and offers this advice to the new climber: “Focus on technique.”
