Dave Hamilton - Hangar 18 General Manager
Having been born into a climbing family, Dave has been climbing since he was two years old, from deep water soloing in Thailand to big wall climbing in Mexico, and teaching climbing for over fourteen years. In addition to running Hangar 18 Climbing Gyms, Dave also does work as a PCIA course provider for the Climbing Wall Instructor program, a climbing and canyoneering guide, an instructor for climbing or outdoor education classes for eight different colleges, a safety consultant and stunt coordinator, and is working to establish a standardized certification for climbers throughout the US. Following in the footsteps of his father, Larry Hamilton, Dave is intensely passionate about spreading good information about climbing safety, and works toward that goal every day.
