If you follow us on Instagram you might have seen pictures of our ET Setters climbing in Hueco Texas using the hashtag #AviClimbsOn.  This is all thanks to the Avi Sengupta Climbing Scholarship—created by Earth Treks to honor the life and memory of beloved ET employee, Avishek “Avi” Sengupta.  We want to share with you a little about what made Avi such a special person and how he inspired the new scholarship program.

Avi Sengupta was an incredible human being and truly represented the best of us as a company and community. He was one of the most passionate individuals we met. Even if you only met Avi once, you would never forget his smile, and passion for life, climbing, and adventure. Avi started working for Earth Treks as a young man and continued his dedicated service while in school and long after launching a successful career.  Avi was an unparalleled listener, possessed wisdom beyond his years, partnered easily, and made everyone he interacted with feel valued.  From a young age, Avi understood the incredible impact that climbing can have on people, and unselfishly went about sharing his passion for climbing (and passion for life) with anyone and everyone.  As a climbing instructor, as a friend, or just someone you bumped into in the cave, Avi provided life changing experiences for countless individuals.  Avi pursued his goals in climbing, fitness, and life every day until we lost him while he was participating in a Tough Mudder event on April 20, 2013.

In Avi’s memory and in his honor, Earth Treks is proud to introduce the Avi Sengupta Climbing Scholarship to Earth Treks Employees.  This scholarship is a grant made annually by Earth Treks to support the climbing dreams of ET employees.

In its inaugural year we received numerous applications and narrowed it down to five awards—the first being the setter’s trip in Hueco!

Follow the ET setters crushing classic Hueco boulders, as well as the other four scholarship recipients throughout 2016. We will be posting updates on Instagram and in a Photo Album on Facebook.

New Earth Treks Climbing Center in Crystal City, VA

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.”

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.
