TYLER WEISS

HEAD ROUTESETTER

Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Tyler has been climbing for nine years. He started climbing because it gave him a way to stay healthy and travel—he’s traveled all around the Southeast to boulder. Now a USAC Level 2 Routesetter, he began setting eight years ago with Triangle Rock Club because he gets to “paint a picture with holds and watch the climbers bring it to life (if I do my job right).”
