First Look: New Earth Treks Climbing Gym in Golden (Photos)

Earth Treks will be opening its new rock climbing gym in Golden any day now, and it is looking VERY GOOD.

You may recall this article I wrote advocating for a premier climbing gym in/near downtown Denver.  Since then, Earth Treks announced it was bringing a gym in Golden, and Movement announced it would be bringing a gym near downtown Denver.  I took a tour of the new Earth Treks gym today and have to say that this gym will be a game-changer for the area.  This will be the largest climbing gym in the state of Colorado and the eighth-largest climbing gym in the country!

Earth Treks invested about $6 million in this new gym, and about $150,000 alone on holds.  There is no tape in the gym–all of the routes are labeled by the color of the holds.  The walls are looking very Good.  With 40 ft. high ceilings, the routes are long and quite varied.  The longest route is a pleasing 65 feet long.  The bouldering areas look fantastic–including a 45 degree wall, a top-out area, and a separate training area with three walls in which you have the ability to control the wall angles!  Totally sweet.

The bathrooms have lockers with electronic combination locks that each user can reprogram as they come and go.  They also have foot baths so that people can wash their feet before heading upstairs to do one of the three yoga classes offered each day.

There are cracks, overhanging areas, a speed climbing area, a birthday party area (with its own bathrooms), a huge workout room with treadmills/weights/other workout machines, a room for yoga, and TONS of square footage dedicated to rock climbing.

I’m looking forward to getting up on the walls at the new Earth Treks gym–especially with winter around the corner!  Below are some photos of the new gym.  Enjoy!
