Who We Are
We know that climbing makes a difference in the lives it touches. Because of this we are a group of passionate rock climbers whose pursuit is to build gyms and teams that bring meaning and purpose to all involved – from customers to staff.
FIND YOUR PATH- It’s our tag line. Our gyms are an inclusive home for people from all walks of life and abilities to explore what the beautiful world of climbing can offer them. We exist to help people find their path.
Our Team is well rounded, enthusiastic and passionate about the sport of climbing and the impact it can have on every story that walks through our doors. We work in the climbing industry because climbing changed our lives, and we want that for others.
“Work- and lots of it- is an indispensable component in a meaningful human life. It is a supreme gift from God and one of the main things that gives our lives purpose. But it must play its proper role, subservient to God.” Tim Keller- Every Good Endeavor
Bloc: A group of people coming together for a common purpose.
Works: Because climbing has given so much to us, we work to give it back. Nothing in life is worth value without the work that goes into it. We love the process.
How we got here
My name is Evan and in February of 2020 I opened Blocworks with my Wife and business partner, Mariah. I worked in the outdoor industry for over 10 years with a brief hiatus working as an Exercise Physiologist in Cardiac Rehab at the Oklahoma Heart Hospital. Mariah has experience in small business leadership, opening and operating two swim schools; Four Season Swimming and most recently Oklahoma Swim Academy. Needless to say, I had just enough passion and she had all the skill sets required to venture into the great unknown. During my time away from the industry I felt the relentless call to open a gym hyper focused on two crucial ingredients of a great climbing gym that are often neglected: routesetting & community. Since opening, our team has grown to include leadership and employees that share in our vision to change the world through climbing – no matter how small our role may be. After opening, we also started our family journey and now have two children Willow and Jude. We are lifelong climbers spending as many vacations as we can sleeping under the stars teaching our kids, and reminding ourselves, the value of adventure and community. We think you will feel that when you walk through the doors of Blocworks! We are so excited to serve you.
Where are we going?
Fast forward and we truly feel like Blocworks’ journey has just begun. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to connect with communities and be a major part of the growth of climbing in Oklahoma. We are excited and looking forward to what’s next. No matter where we go you can count on Blocworks to be warm and hospitable and captivate you through the movement of rock climbing.
