Routes For Every Skill Level

We have a team of creative design specialists dedicated to thinking outside the box and using their skills to create new climbing routes at all of our facilities. Thanks to them, our terrain is always exciting, challenging and up to par with the expectations of our climbers. Each week, our talented team of routesetters rotates between our locations and work together to craft innovative climbing problems for climbers of all skill levels.

Get to know our setters and make sure you thank them when you see them around our facilities – these folks play a huge role in making Triangle Rock Club what it is and rarely get enough kudos for their hard work!


Scott Gilliam

Our Head Routesetter. A native of the NC mountains, Scott moved to Triangle before he discovered climbing and his love for the sport. He has since tackled long routes in the western U.S. and, with a passion for steep gear routes, Scott has spent numerous days cragging in all over the country, especially here in his native Southeast. After ten years in management and marketing in the tech sector, TRC is Scott’s second life. Scott served on the Board of Directors of the Carolina Climbers’ Coalition for eight years, but now spends his extra time playing music with his phenomenal band Phononova!

Glenn Shelton

Glenn has been setting routes and boulders at TRC-Raleigh and TRC-Morrisville since February 2018. He previously set routes and boulders at Planet Rock Climbing Gym in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the better part of 2017. Before moving to the Midwest from his home state of California in 2015, rock climbing became one of his passions in 2013. From the get-go, trad climbing has been his favorite niche. The eastern Sierras, Red Rock, NV, and Red River Gorge, KY are a few of his favorite places to plug gear. As for locations a bit closer to home, he’s enjoyed Stone Mtn, Ship Rock, The Dump, Pilot, Moore’s Wall, Rumbling Bald, and Linville Gorge.

Josh Stevens

Josh’s climbing roots go back to 2007, when he enrolled in an NCSU beginner rock climbing class. He started working at TRC in 2014 as floor staff and an instructor, then he started setting in 2015. When he’s not climbing, he enjoys kayaking, riding motorcycles, and D&D.
