Claire Johnson

Hello all! My name is Claire Johnson and I am beyond stoked to be your Hoofers Mountaineering President this year! I am a sophomore studying Communication Arts & Digital Cinema Productions. The infinite dimensions of rock climbing and its community have had me hooked from the start. In the past five years since then, I’ve climbed all over the Midwest and am starting to tick off routes out West. I cannot wait to lead such an awesome group of climbers and earth-dwellers! Please reach out to me if you have any questions!

Climbing Team Director


Nicole Mitchell

Hi! My name is Nicole and I'm one of the directors of the climbing team, along with Abe. I'm a junior studying chemical engineering and am originally from Massachusetts, although I went to high school in Malaysia which is where I started climbing. I founded and captained the climbing team at my high school and led the team at local and international competitions. My passion is indoor bouldering, but I also love all types of outdoor climbing and have sent in Malaysia, Thailand, Puerto Rico, Nevada, and Wisconsin (and soon, Spain!). Please reach out to and take a look at with any questions about Hoofer Mountaineering Club Climbing Team or about HMC in general! I love meeting new climbers and am stoked to lead team this year! 🙂

Michael Wolfe

Hello! I'm your HMC education chair (reach out to me! and entering my fifth year as a Physics PhD student. Before Madison, I was at University of Maryland Baltimore County where I studied Physics, Math, and Music, snagging guest passes at Earth Treks whenever I had the chance. I started taking climbing seriously about three years ago and joined Hoofers a couple years ago. I frequent Boulders East, traveling to crags all over the country in my soccer-mom minivan (shoutout to Vanny Jr.), and occasionally being "that guy" with his guitar around the Miguel's Pizza campfire at the Red.

Greetings! I'm Jill and I'm psyched to be Mountaineering's webmaster this year! I am a junior studying conservation biology and environmental studies. Always happy to chat about that stuff on top of climbing of course. I've been climbing for about 3 years now since my dad got me into a gym, and I've loved every minute of it. Hoofers has gotten me to where I am in terms of skill level, community, experience, and overall stoke for the sport. Let me know if you've got any questions or comments about the site or anything Hoofers or climbing, etc. You can also find me in the Outdoor UW office!!
