Whitey- General Manager
My real name is Alex White, but don’t tell anyone ūüôā Please call me Whitey! I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. My first climbing experience was at the local climbing gym for a birthday party when I was around the age of 7. I loved it to say the least. My first climb on real rock was at summer camp when I was 11 years old. I’ve been a climber since then! Growing up in the Southeast was actually a great place for me to hone my skills. Year round climbing coupled with easy access, and great rock, made for some excellent stomping grounds. My mom (who is the absolute best!) would drive me and my friends to the crag and just let us do our thing. While she was reading her book, she had no idea what we were actually doing. And neither did we. We were self taught climbers. (Not recommended) After a few years of doing that I actually figured out what the heck I was doing, and then REALLY got into climbing. Since those early days, climbing has taken me all over the world. I’ve climbed¬†in Canada, Mexico, Vietnam, France, and Greece. Hoping for a trip to China in the near future.
I was fortunate enough to help open this amazing place we call Rockfish. From welding to T-nuts, I’ve been here since the beginning, and I couldn’t be more stoked! So grateful to have an amazing place to train and chill. Here’s to many, many more years of fun and craziness! See you down here!

Ryan Nelson РHead Climbing Coach

I grew up here in the valley bouncing back and forth between Whitefish and Kalispell. I graduated from Flathead High¬†School, then made my way down to the University of Montana in Missoula to complete my degree in Elementary Education.¬† I began climbing in high school as a weekend warrior and soon I found myself adapting this as a lifestyle change.¬† Now after 15 years of practicing, training, and taking climbing trips the love and drive for the sport has only grown.¬† RockFish has been my home since it opened in 2016, and in 2017 I developed the Team Scalers Youth Team Program.¬† Instructing and coaching has always been my main passion beyond simply enjoying my personal climbing and training.¬† If Im not climbing its a good chance you’ll see me paddling up the river, or out scouting for new lines and boulders. In the winter months skiing is my escape from the gym, and every once in awhile the ice will call me and I’ll just have to bust out the tools. Chances are if you come in, you’ll see me at the desk, coaching, or mopping the floors. I do it all!¬† Feel free to say hi and maybe I’ll see you at the crag.
