Texas Ibexes Coaching
The Texas Ibexes head coach will be Carson Gleim. You might know Carson already as one of our lead instructors as well as one of our routesetters. Carson is well versed in movement, climbing, athlete progression, competitions, and coaching. He will also be assisted by other members of the StoneCo coaching staff with similar skillsets, most of whom have competed at the collegiate level themselves and are some of the best climbers in the region. Carson will be responsible for developing fun and engaging climbing lessons and implementing a strong training program that is tailored to suit each individual athlete. Any and all coaching related questions and concerns can be directed to Carson as a single point of contact.
