Golden, CO, Dec 06, 2012 -

Earth Treks Climbing Centers announces a new climbing center in Golden Colorado.  Slated to open in late 2013, Earth Treks Golden will be Earth Treks’ fourth climbing center and first outside of Maryland.  Earth Treks’ next gym will be housed in a 29,000 sq ft purpose-built building just 15 minutes west of Denver.  This new state of the art facility will offer over 25,000 sq. ft. of climbing and amenities such as a full service fitness center, dedicated strength training area, yoga room, and high quality locker room facilities.

Founded by Chris Warner, Earth Treks has operated the premier climbing facilities in the Baltimore/Washington region since 1997.  Earth Treks started as an international mountaineering guide service and climbing school (founded in 1990) and has been evolving with the sport ever since. “We still guide plenty of expeditions, but are intrigued with bringing the magic of climbing to as many people as possible,” states Warner. “Indoor climbing gyms are truly special places, where hard core athletes and beginners create a unique community—a place where you can express your passion for climbing as a sport and a lifestyle with like minded individuals. Our goal in Golden is to take all we’ve learned from our customers, 15 years of gym operations and 30 years of teaching climbing and create the next generation climbing gym.”

Earth Treks expects to break ground in March.  Keep tabs on all the exciting developments as they unfold at earthtreksclimbing.com and the new Earth Treks Golden Facebook page.
