Paul Klem - Membership Coordinator

At Large


Membership Coordinator

Tarheel-native and Triangle resident for nearly 20 years. Paul rediscovered climbing as an adult initially to destress from the work-week, and found the physical and mental challenge combined with the opportunity to meet other people engaged in an active lifestyle would become more than a hobby. Paul is the current Club Director at Triangle Rock Club in Raleigh. When he’s not at the gym, you’ll probably find him underneath a boulder at Moore’s Wall or the Asheboro Boulders, or doing yoga with his multi-talented wife Mercedes and (adorable) daughter Lia. 

Paul has made numerous trips to bouldering crags all through the Carolinas and out West, and participated in Triple Crown events since 2016; perhaps you’ve met him underneath a boulder?

He hopes to create and strengthen meaningful connections with existing CCC members, the business community, and helping to bridge the gap for newer climbers looking to get outside safely and responsibly; through community-focused events to raise awareness and drive giving, he plans to increase the Triangle community’s contributions to stewardship and preservation to climbing areas in the central and western piedmont.
