New Earth Treks location revealed!

Well, you didn’t have to wait for the exact location as long as we thought—it’s time to officially unveil that Earth Treks is coming to Crystal City, VA!  The new gym will be located at 1235 S. Clark St. and will take full advantage of the unique space afforded by an existing racquet club.  Dust will be flying around the New Year when Earth Treks plans to start demolishing the existing facility in preparation for climbing wall construction.  High ceilinged tennis and racquetball courts will make way for a jaw dropping 35,000 sq ft climbing wall.  Get stoked and check out all the bouldering and roped terrain in our Climbing Wall Virtual Tour, brought to you by the wall’s designer, Jason Kehl.

With metro access, Bikeshare, and ample parking, Earth Treks Crystal City is convenient to Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.  The new location is just a five minute walk from the Crystal City Metro stop off the Blue and Yellow lines, and served by numerous biking trails.  On site garaged parking will serve the gym and be free during peak hours.  Surrounded by scores of shops and restaurants, Earth Treks will feel right at home in Crystal City’s burgeoning creative community!  Remember to follow the latest developments at earthtreksclimbing.com and on Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/EarthTreks.CrystalCity.

Earth Treks Announces Plans for New DC Metro Gym!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The wait is over—Earth Treks is coming to the DC Metro area!  We are thrilled to announce plans to open a fifth climbing gym, and our first located within the Washington, D.C. beltway.  A grand opening is planned for late spring 2016.

True to form, Earth Treks’ newest facility will be industry leading in amenities and size.  With a massive footprint exceeding 45,000 sq ft, the DC Metro location will be among the biggest climbing gyms in the nation.  How big you ask?  Consider that the footprint of the new location is more than 50% bigger than Earth Treks Rockville—which is already ranked as the 2nd biggest climbing gym in the nation.  There will be 35,000 sq ft of awe inspiring climbing terrain, including more bouldering than any other Earth Treks gym.  The roped climbing area alone is so massive that you could drop the entire Earth Treks Timonium building in it and have room to spare.  So real big.

With metro access AND ample parking, urbanites and suburbanites alike will be salivating at the new gym’s convenience to Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.  Earth Treks’ owner, Chris Warner, expects the new location to be immensely popular, “but all those eager climbers will have to hold tight for the big reveal.  We anticipate announcing the exact location before the New Year.”

Follow the latest on Earth Treks’ DC Metro location at earthtreksclimbing.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/EarthTreks.DC.

FEATURING:

  • A 35,000 sq ft climbing wall constructed by Walltopia, designed by Jason Kehl and packed with bouldering and roped terrain.
  • Huge fitness and climbing training areas.
  • Dedicated yoga and group fitness room.
  • Private climbing teaching areas.
  • High end locker rooms.
  • Fully stocked gear shop.

ROCK Project Tour | Denver
(For more information on the ROCK Project, visit the Access Fund website!

The ROCK Project Tour continues in Denver for a first of its kind climbing, advocacy, and education event celebrating the climbing life. Join the local climbing community in the front range, pro-athletes, Earth Treks, the Boulder Climbing Community, and REI for this exclusive event, which includes clinics with professional climbers and guides, presentations, and parties! Get psyched to be a part of the ROCK Project movement!  *All participants will leave with tips and tricks that will help them be a better climber along with tools and skills to help take care of the climbing environment. Together we can put the ROCK Project Pact into practice and keep our favorite outdoor climbing areas open and protected.

*Note: The ROCK Project Tour clinics focus on the transition from climbing indoors to outdoors within the trad, sport, and bouldering disciplines. Ideal participants have intermediate level experience climbing indoors at a minimum. If participating in the trad or sport clinic participants must successfullly pass the Earth Treks belay test to participate. We welcome climbers with more experience outdoors and will do our best to teach to each individual based on their current skill level.

There are 25 slots available for each clinic track.
