  • Did you know that Earth Treks Columbia was Earth Treks’ first climbing center?  After offering only mountaineering expeditions and outdoor dc rock climbing instruction for its first five years of operations, Earth Treks opened its first climbing center in Columbia, MD in 1997.  Since opening in 1997, Earth Treks Columbia has seen numerous renovations and expansions.

  • Earth Treks now operates four climbing centers in MD and CO.  This includes a DC climbing gym (Near DC in Rockville, MD).  If you’re looking for indoor DC rock climbing look no further than Earth Treks Rockville, the nation’s largest indoor climbing gym.
