The year was 1980 and a group of passionate rock climbers spent their days pushing the limits at Smith Rock State Park. Sharing a love for rock climbing and with a deep respect for the sport and their environment, they free climbed, bouldered, and explored the big walls.
"Why not turn our passion into our work?" they asked themselves and soon the members of Metolius Climbing started designing and building their own equipment in a tiny garage at the headwaters of the Metolius River. Focusing on quality, safety, and design excellence, Metolius Climbing has continued to be a leading manufacturer and innovator of climbing equipment including; cams, nuts, hexes, carabiners, quick draws, ropes, slings, belay rappel devices, and harnesses.
Always pushing the envelope, Metolius has gained a industry wide reputation for producing innovative, steam-lined, overbuilt products such as their Master Cam, Super Cam, Astro Nut, Curve Nut, Curve Hex, and Quick Gate Biners. Metolius Climbing builds only the best products for Big Wall, Sport, Trad, Bouldering and Mountaineering as well as for training and indoor climbing gyms.
If you are heading down to your favorite river side bouldering spot, don't forget your bouldering gear and make sure to bring along one of Metolius' crash pads for a soft landing. Brushes, tape, and some Super Chalk are just a few of the necessities you should through into the Stash Chalk Bag before you start work on the newest problem.
And just because the weather isn't great, don't let your climbing fitness lapse. For off-season or indoor training, Metolius Climbing offers a wide range of cleverly designed holds and training boards, such as the Slim Gym Training Board, Rock Rings and a variety of bold-on, screw-on, and wooded grips and holds.
