Taller | Larger | Newer

Now that the new climbing walls are open , there seems to be a lull in the excitement of the Expansion Project but rest assured progress is continuing!! #edgeworks_expansion

This past month, the work has been focused on the installation of the steel frame for the new 2nd floor mezzanine ; pouring the concrete footings, setting the steel framework, and installing the new stairs. Once this work is complete, the next step of framing the walls will begin later this month and then things will really start to take shape .

Similar to the original concept design, the new mezzanine will run the full length of the 2nd floor; wrapping around behind the front desk - providing a dedicated yoga studio , improved community gathering areas, and additional work spaces .

TRIP REPORT | Mt. Rainier 2018
by Andrew Powell

On the morning of July 15, Tod, Andrew, and 4 guests, gathered at the gym to prep gear and drive out to the White River Ranger Station to begin their journey to the summit of Mt. Rainier . It was a successful 4-day trip that included a unique and challenging way up the Emmons-Winthrop Glacier.

Our newer, taller walls bring better endurance training, new styles of routes, and all new projects! Unfortunately, this can also mean serious neck pain for your belayer. Feeling the strain of the new wall and looking for a little relief? Metolius’ Upshot Belay Glasses have got your back!

Next time you’re in the gym, ask about trying them out. Your neck will thank you!
