Parking in Rockville can be a bit tight. But other local businesses have offered their lots for us. The high school across the street should be available, as they are not hosting any activities that day. The Sandy Spring Bank is available after 12pm. There is also street parking on Fleet St and Mt. Vernon St. (along the side of the car dealership).

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
We have a new video giving a sneak peak into what goes into the Road, one of Earth Treks Fitness Programs.
The Road is meant to give participants a strong physical-training edge to their climbing. This is a no-joke course that will be physically demanding regardless of your level of fitness. It is intended to become a part of a climber’s regular routine of fitness training throughout the year.
Many routines will be body-weight routines. Other routines may employ “unconventional” methods of resistance outside the scope of what a “regular” gym can offer. As an example, during a session participants could be expected to do a set of chin-ups, swing a sledgehammer and then drag a 250lb tire.
All workouts will be geared towards helping participants realize climbing-specific physical goals. In addition to the workouts, participants will receive additional “homework” assignments and/or specific nutritional recommendations.
If you didn’t get a chance last year to attend the PCI clinics in Rockville this is your chance! Kevin Jorgeson will be running the PCI clinics this time around and we are excited to have him! Clinics will take place at two Earth Treks locations:
April 10th -Earth Treks Timonium
April 11th-Earth Treks Rockville
6:30pm and 8:00pm**
Clinic: TOP 3 MISTAKES CLIMBERS MAKE ON OVERHANGS – AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT
The focus of this clinic is to help you dramatically improve your performance on overhanging terrain. While training will make you stronger, technique is the key to unlocking your intrinsic potential. Each session will be specifically focused to the ability range of the participants. Space is limited and will fill quickly!
Wondering who Pro Climbers International is?
Pro Climbers International (PCI) is an association founded to create a better future for athletes through programs that develop and inspire the next generation of climbers.
To help develop the next generation, PCI began a community climbing initiative in Sonoma, CA in January 2010. In two years, over 2,500 square feet of climbing surface have been installed, over 750 kids have been exposed to the sport. Climbing is now the most popular sport at the elementary school. Climbing camp at the Boys and Girls Club is sold out every summer.
To help inspire the next generation, PCI produced a captivating professional bouldering competition in Boulder, Colorado in May 2010. In September 2011, PCI launched the Pro Clinic Series, a nationwide instructional tour featuring PCI athletes for a weekend of performance clinics, product demos, poster signings, and slideshows. PCI has delivered its members to meet the instructional and inspirational demand from corporations such as Google and luxury resorts such as the Viceroy Hotel Group.
