Meet the Coaches at Mesa Rim!

Rosie Bates

Rosie Bates

Head Coach + L2 Setter

Rosie spent her childhood hiking and exploring the forests and peaks of the North Cascades in Washington with her dad. As a native Washingtonian and lifelong climber, he introduced her to rock climbing at young age but she preferred a pair of tap [dancing] shoes to a pair of climbing shoes. She tap danced for 9 years until 2004 at the age 13 when she joined the the local youth youth climbing team at Vertical World Climbing Gym and was hooked. Under the guidance of her coaches, Sydney McNair and Tyson Schoene she developed a love and passion for the competitive side of the sport. In her time as a youth climber Rosie competed at local, divisional and national competitions. While competing and training taught Rosie valuable lessons about hard work and dedication, she often reverts back to her trad climbing roots. Rosie moved to San Diego in 2009 to attend the University of San Diego where she started the USD Climbing Team which now is one of the biggest sports clubs on campus. She graduated in 2013 with a bachelors in Psychology. Rosie hopes to share her passion with youth who, like herself, want to explore their physical and mental capacities through rock climbing.

Mark Kattus

Mark Kattus

L1 Setter + Assistant Coach

Growing up in San Diego, Mark had the typical Southern California childhood—eating sand, surfing, and getting sunburned. But all that changed when he took his first trip to a friend’s home wall in North County. He traded his quiver of surfboards for a quiver of climbing shoes, and warm days at the beach for cold nights in the mountains. A physicist by education, Mark is fascinated by climbing movement; he is, therefore, most drawn to the purity of movement found in bouldering, though he dabbles in all disciplines of the sport. He started setting at the Outback Climbing Center in 2010, immediately appreciating it as both a creative outlet and a means to further his understanding of movement on rock. He is psyched to grow as a climber and setter as a part of the Mesa Rim team.

Daton Morris

Daton Morris

Assistant Coach + Personal Trainer

Daton started climbing 6 years ago when one of his friends invited him to the Santee. Easily convinced without a sight of swell in the water Daton was instantly hooked with bouldering and fell in love with climbing.The day after he got a gym membership and climbed almost everyday for the next year nearly giving up all other activities including surfing. Different than surfing this was not the most ideal way of training and lead Daton to adapt new ways of smarter training constantly exploring new ideas, methods, and exercises specifically for climbing. Besides the physical parts of training Daton also became very interested in the mental side of climbing and also ways to train the brain for the imposed demands. Daton’s favorite style of climbing is bouldering and specifically he enjoys exploring any new areas that have a glimpse of rock from pictures scoured from google earth. When he is not scavenging for new spots or training for climbing he enjoys surfing( a lifelong passion), slack lining and hanging out with his daughter and family.
