Rich Grey RIP

We are saddened to report the passing of Rich Grey today (March 18, 2018).

Rich Grey had been part of the Atlanta climbing community for 22+ years. He had worked for Atlanta Rocks! since 1996. He was also a flight instructor, train enthusiast, and avid skateboarder. He could climb 5.11s in his tennis shoes. 🙂

Grey loved his mother more than life itself. The climbing community rallied around him years ago to help buy a cemetery marker for his mother. He chose to use the leftover money to go towards the Wounded Warrior Project and The Rangers Scholarship Fund in honor of our dear climbing buddy Jon Peney who was killed while serving in Afghanistan.

Today marks Atlanta Rocks! 23rd anniversary. Unfortunately, it is overshadowed by the fact we lost Richard Grey yesterday to cancer. Rich worked here for 22 of our 23 years and taught more people than anyone in Atlanta. Literally thousands of classes and tens of thousands of people during his time here. He was a true friend and will be sorely missed. ... See MoreSee Less
