Metolius equipment was born out of respect for the sport we love, rock climbing. When a group of climbers came together in the 1980s at Smith Rock, they all wanted to to push their personal limits, and needed the equipment to do so. Metolius started in a small garage near the headwaters of the Metolius River. It has since grown into a well respected name in the climbing industry synonymous with quality, safety, and design excellence. For the past 25 years, they have been wholly dedicated to the climbing lifestyle, making the absolute best equipment, and helping to educate others while preserving the environment in which we all live and play.
