OUR STORY

The Quarry opened its doors in 2000. It was built by, is owned, and continues to be run by climbers. We wanted a quality venue where we could train during inclement weather (or had limited time making an outdoor trip futile) and a family friendly place to introduce new people to our sport. We are grateful for our success and the support of the community. Our membership base is strong and our youth programs continue to operate at capacity. We are proud that The Quarry has become a landmark in Provo.

Desk Staff

WILLIS KNAPP

GENERAL MANAGER

Willis is from Provo. An original investor in The Quarry, he has been at the helm since 2006. With a BS from BYU in Outdoor Recreation, he’s passionate about skiing, rock climbing, and ice climbing, mountain biking, live music, Shakespeare and film. He loves spending time in the outdoors and spending time with his wife and their 11 children.

TYSIN SCHAUGAARD

WALL MANAGER / HEAD ROUTE SETTER

Tysin started working at The Quarry as a volunteer belay instructor over 10 years ago. Since then, he has worked himself into one of The Quarry’s most valuable assets. He loves building, innovating, and fixing stuff. When not at The Quarry, Tysin can be found hanging out with his wife and their two kiddos.

MORGAN KNAPP

MEMBERSHIP MANAGER

Morgan has been working at The Quarry since 2007, and has done nearly every job there is to do here. This includes vacuuming the tops of the climbing walls and washing holds outside during the wintertime. He loves music, film, reading, and helping Quarry members with their memberships.

BRANDON ROGERS

HEAD COACH / ROUTE SETTER

Brandon hails from Pittsburgh, PA and moved to Utah in order to pursue a higher education—which he found. He eventually discovered that school wasn’t the route, and that climbing was more meaningful to him. He loves photography, highball bouldering, road trips, hanging out with “the gang,” and route setting.

TATUM LEE

YOGA MANAGER/HEAD REC TEAM COACH

Tate has been climbing since 2011. She grew up in Las Vegas but stayed in Utah after graduating from BYU because she loves the mountains. Passionate about watercolors, practicing yoga, bouldering and collecting butterflies, you can usually find Tate and her husband climbing in Joe’s Valley on the weekends.

ALEXIS SORENSON

CLIMBING SCHOOL DIRECTOR

Fifteen years ago, Alexis took a rock climbing class in college and fell in love with it. With a BS degree in Outdoor Recreation Management from UVU, she instructs scuba diving in Utah, skydives worldwide, and teaches the rock climbing classes offered at The Quarry.

ABE KIM

HEAD INSTRUCTOR

Abe was first introduced to climbing in high school but really got into it during his freshman year at BYU. Now as a graduate, The Quarry has become his second home. He loves being a climbing instructor and sharing the stoke!

LIA GONZALEZ

SUMMER CAMP DIRECTOR

Lia is from Dallas, Texas and holds a B.S. degree in Outdoor Recreation from UVU. She loves climbing, her two German Shepherds (Kenai & Ajax) and her husband Taylor. She’s also a seasoned Summer Camp veteran with a deep fondness for children (especially her son Lucas).

KENZIE KNAPP

HEAD BASE CAMP COACH

Although Kenzie grew up in Washington State, she’s now a “Provo Knapp”—however, she’s not Willis’ daughter. Kenzie has been climbing and working at The Quarry for 5 years, and is currently studying law at BYU. She loves soccer, reading, and her Labradoodle puppy Mitt.
