Relocating to Minnesota:

Our employees love the flourishing climbing community along with the urban and outdoor activities the Minneapolis, MN area is known for. If you’re thinking, “but isn’t the midwest kinda, ya know, COLD?” Well yes, it's basically a frozen tundra by winter, but that's never slowed any of us down or stopped us from enjoying everything Minnesota has to offer. And the summers are amazing. 

With all the good food, great music, sooooo many breweries, hundreds of miles of wildland, the boundary waters, the driftless, world-class arts community, a stellar bike infrastructure… not to mention the concept of “hot dishes”, a state fair that just won’t quit, and one of the best climbing, cycling, and just general outdoor communities in the country, Minnesota is one of the best damn places to be. If ya know, ya know.

The Twin Cities also has one of the biggest indoor climbing hubs in the country. We have 4 major Vertical Endeavors Gyms, the Minneapolis Bouldering Project, Two University Climbing Gyms, The A, and the MN Bouldering COOP all within the city limits to get your climbing fix. And when it comes to the climbing industry (climbing walls and hold manufacturing), Escape, Nicros, Everlast, and Kumiki have all made it headquarters. Together, this has all worked to foster an actively growing, healthy climbing community that has a place for everyone. When it comes to outdoor climbing, while we are not a major climbing destination, we certainly are not lacking rock. From bouldering at Sandstone to Sawmill, sport climbing Willow River to Redwing, and trad climbing Taylors Falls to the North Shore we have the different disciplines covered and enough rock to go around. Don’t even get us started on ice.
