It all starts with an innovative mindset. From there, Metolius tirelessly strives
to draw up incredibly clean designs. Then they seek out only the best materials,
because only the highest quality will do. Finally, Metolius crafts their heralded
climbing gear with an overbuilt construction that cuts no corners and leaves nothing
to be desired. They have focused all of their energy towards creating products
that in design alone are just safer. This approach is the result born from their
own people spending incalculable amounts of time in the mountains, clinging to
massive walls, reading nearly invisible lines and practicing hard in the gym.
Everyone has their own style of climbing, but Metolius has crafted something for
all approaches and ascents.
Metolius is a highly reputable producer of climbing equipment and they have been
earning accolades ever since their establishment in 1983. Doug Phillips, a master
craftsman, founded the company out of his garage in the High Desert of Central
Oregon. His dedication to quality workmanship remains a staple of the Metolius
brand to this day. Their headquarters in Bend, Oregon has strategically positioned
them in close proximity to the climbing paradise known across the map as Smith
Rock. It is here that they are able to hone every piece of gear in order to meet
the demands of even the most advanced climbers.
They have thought of everything for every climbing encounter. The Metolius Iron
Hand Glove is an incredibly rugged hunk of handwear that is the perfect companion
for big wall climbs, belaying and even ropes courses. Breathable and lightweight
for use in warmer weather, this glove also packs extra protection power in areas
you need it most. Form fitting, full of grip and multi-stitched for durability,
the Metolius Iron Hand Glove is everything you need it to be.
Committed to enhancing every aspect of a climber’s passion, Metolius concocts
all kinds of climbing accessories to improve each and every session. Metolius
Hand Repair Balm eliminates dry, chapped, painful hands with its specially formulated
recipe that promotes quick healing and new skin growth. All kinds of chalks and
tapes are also available to guard, protect, and give you the grip you need to
grasp that next handhold.
Another of the Metolius claims to fame is their selection of high quality cams
and nuts. They constantly go the extra mile to ensure that only the most reliable
pieces leave their building so that climbers can feel safe putting their trust
in the kind of gear that never fails to live up to the Metolius name.
No matter what kind of climbing calls to you, know that Metolius shares your passion.
Their dedication to design and safety is sure to fuel your love for the sport
any way you like to get after it.
