Meet Our Setters

Moses

Moses

Head Route Setter

Moses began his love affair with climbing in his hometown, San Luis Obispo. After more than twenty years, that passion continues to influence his lifestyle and professional pursuits. Moses is a Level 4 USAC nationally certified route setter, most recently contributing to ABS Youth Nationals 2015, CCS Nationals 2015, and SCS Open Nationals 2014. Moses’ route setting style, which he imparts to his coworkers, is informed by his rock climbing adventures across North America – including the Southeast, Squamish, and Hueco Tanks – and around the world – places such as Rocklands, South Africa; Catalunya, Spain; and Fontainebleau. His climbs are known for their sustained, technical nature, as well as their “flowing,” comfortable movements. Moses has climbed 5.14a and v13. He teaches the occasional belay class, Foundations class, or private lesson, on request. Just ask!

Brian

Brian

Route Setter

Brian began climbing in 1999 in NC at age 12 and began setting for his local gym 4 years later. In 2006 he relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, worked for several large climbing gyms, and picked up the nickname CUZ. He’s climbed extensively throughout the United States with a broad interest in many disciplines within climbing. Together with the legendary Steve “Shipoopi” Schneider, Brian has climbed El Capitan aid routes up to the grade A3+, with a possible third ascent of the Virginia variation of Tangerine Trip. He has also been forced into many notable retreats from numerous Yosemite big walls, either due to logistics or inclement weather. During the winters he tries to avoid falling off of boulder problems up to

Chad

Chad

Route Setter

Chad began climbing in 1992, mentored by his older brother, mostly in Joshua Tree and Yosemite. Chad moved into competition climbing, which eventually took Chad as far away as France, where he represented the US in the World Cup. Chad brings these decades of climbing experience to both his coaching and setting at Sender One. Chad has a degree in Exercise Science from CSU Long Beach.

Kody

Kody

Route Setter

Kody, a long Beach native, has been addicted to climbing since 2005. He started gym climbing when he was a spry tween, at what was formerly The Rock Gym at Signal Hill, gleefully absorbing every dimension of the sport. Having now evolved into the man-child seen above, his love for climbing has pushed him deep into the art of route setting. Beyond setting, Kody enjoys wresting boulders outside with a child-like enthusiasm. His favorite areas include The Buttermilk Country of Bishop, Black Mountain, and Geology Tour Road in Joshua Tree. His proudest sends include Evolution (to the lip), Zen Flute, and his recent ascent of Sharma Traverse.

Randy

Randy

Route Setter

A SoCal native, Randy Casillan has been climbing since 2006 and has turned it into both a career and a way of life. He enjoys both bouldering and sport climbing and is trying his hand(s) at doing more trad routes. Some of his favorite climbing spots include Bishop, Hueco Tanks, Joe’s Valley, and Tramway. His other interests include sailing, biking, photography, and playing Magic the Gathering.
