Sarahjoy Allen
Owner / General Manager / Head Route Setter

I am a Nebraska native, graduated from UNL with an ME, and was an energy engineer for the past 9-years. I worked for Schnackel Engineers, Kiewit Building Group, and Noresco, all the while developing a business plan around my extracurricular passion of rock climbing. I have always enjoyed problem solving and believe this attribute is the source of my obsession for climbing. Whether it be scaling multi-pitch rock formations outdoors or bouldering indoors with friends, all forms of climbing present physical and mental challenges, which are equally important to me.

As our gym’s general manager, head route setter, and lead instructor, it is my personal goal to make indoor climbing accessible to everyone interested. I enjoy teaching and working with others and have the skill set necessary to ensure their enjoyment as well. I look forward to serving Omaha’s outdoor community with a new indoor climbing gym experience.

I was born and raised in the Trenton, New Jersey area and came to Approach from Outward Bound. Prior to climbing for a living I worked in emergency services (Fire/EMS).
