Doug Cosby: Owner
Doug has been climbing and teaching climbing for over 30 years. He has climbed dozens of 5.13 and hundreds of 5.12 climbs. In the early 90s he established over 50 first assents at the New River Gorge and discovered and spearheaded the development of the climbing at Summersville Lake. Although he is known as a sport climber he has actually spent far more days placing gear than clipping bolts. Doug was a founding and managing partner in Sportrock Climbing Centers in the Washington DC area. In 1997 he sold his share of that company and moved with his wife Page to Charlotte. They opened Inner Peaks the next year.

Anna Dedmon: Routesetter & Team Coach
Note Anna’s underbite in her childhood photo – she almost had to have her jaw broken to resolve her underbite. It somehow resolved on its own (yippee). Another fact about Anna, she has a thick boy, named Atlas, who is half great dane and half chocolate lab, who is frequently gallivanting around the gym and barking at members (occasionally). She has been climbing for 5 years.

This sad cowgirl was introduced to IP & Climbing by her best friend and long time employee/residence of IP, a long three years ago.
