Metolius equipment is born out of respect for the sport we love, rock climbing. We are aunique collection of North American climbers who came together in the1980s to push our personal limits at Smith Rock. We shared a common passion for hard gymnastic free climbing, bouldering and for exploration in the mountains andon bigwalls. Unwilling to punch the corporate clock, we decided to design and build our own equipment, much of which was unavailable at the time. Amazingly, Metolius grew from Doug's tiny garage near the headwaters of the Metolius River (where we take our name), into a respectable business and a brand name that has become synonymous with quality, safety and design excellence. Twenty five years later we are still totally committed to the climbing lifestyle, making the absolute best equipment, helping to educate others and preserving the environment in which we live and play.
Beyond Hope support the following climbers in the UK.
