Greetings members of the Earth Treks community
This is Ward a.k.a. Skilla, head routesitter of Earth Treks Rockville
My name's Scott Hipeman, and I'm the Director of Operations and Vice President of Earth Treks.
And I've been running construction now it'll be a month tomorrow, and we've come up with some pretty amazing designs that we think will prove really exciting to climb on for many years to come
It's been an evolution over the years with how we build our walls. The guys from Eldorado Wall Company have been nothing but brilliant.
So it's a really collaborative effort and they bring all of that energy together to make something really incredible that nobody has ever seen before.
It's been really, really good. My favorite so far. We started with a pretty core group of Tree and Ward and Ashley, JC Peele, Matt Bosley, Charlotte Bosley, Scott Hipeman, Chris Warner.
Collaborated with the designer at Eldo, this guy Jason, who has been nothing but inspirational to all of us.
It's gonna be a big wall that looks like a giant nuclear reactor.
Our reactor wall is nearly done. We're waiting on some rolled steel for our main reactor feature.
And they've begun erecting the main lead wall, which I know everyone is super excited about.
We have a lead wall that's capable of basically 45 degree overhanging lead routes that overhang about 35 feet in the 40 feet height of the gym. That'll really be incredible.
The steepest, hardest part is going to be right at the top of the ceiling, so you've got to get that workout.
It's gonna be just really, really unique terrain. Nothing I've seen in any climbing gym so far has matched this.
