Metolius was the first company to bring indoor climbing and training products to North America. As far back as the 1980's, we saw the need for indoor alternatives to escape the cold, harsh winters or the hot, humid summers. We even fantasized that one day there would be gyms designed specifically to cater to the needs of climbers. Happily, our dreams came true and facilities for climbing are nearly everywhere. It is a good time to be a climber!
