Metolius Climbing manufactures rock climbing gear and was founded in 1983 by master craftsman Doug Phillips. Doug started in his Central Oregon garage, making gear and selling it in the Smith Rock parking lot or down in the Dihedrals. Back then, much of the gear we now take for granted wasn’t available, so we just made it ourselves. It started with the Slider Nut and was quickly followed by the first flexible-stem camming device, the TCU. These two pieces of gear blew the lid off the technological barriers of our generation and opened up whole new realms. And as it turned out, other like-minded souls wanted these items too.
We realized that if anything was going to allow the average climber to push his or her own personal limits, it was going to be gear that was lighter, stronger and safer. As Peter Croft taught us, you don’t need gear to climb; you only need it if you fall off! This is when our “Safer by design” philosophy really began to make sense to us and became a design priority.
