PLANET GRANITE PORTLAND - coming 2014
UPDATE: DECEMBER 2013
Construction has begun and check out these awesome shots of our Portland walls made by Walltopia!
We are thrilled with our final product. It has been months of tweaking and fine tuning, collaborating with our route setters, advanced climbers and instructors, our local crack afficionados and many others! We think our patience has been rewarded - in the form of some pretty darn amazing walls!

We are thrilled to announce we will be working with Walltopia to build our Portland Gym!
Since launching in 1996, Walltopia has become an industry leader in climbing wall building and design. Their walls can be found inside Stone Summit, Momentum, Stone Gardens, SoIll and other great facilities around the world. Their creative designs and unique products, such as 3D curves, Space Walls, and non-marking surfaces create architecturally inspiring works of art that both look and climb amazingly well.

"I love their walls and will be proud to put them in our Portland gym," says Planet Granite owner Micky Lloyd. "Having built our own climbing walls in the past it has been nerve wracking to contemplate having an outsider build them for us. Seeing the quality of their product and the passion Walltopia has for innovation makes me comfortable that we have made the right choice."
Over the years, Planet Granite has brought innovation to its climbing gyms, such as being the first to build a hydraulically adjustable crack and system board. Planet Granite Portland will take the best of what we've built, and combined with Walltopia's designs, be an amazing gym. We've laid out some initial wall ideas and we can't wait to see what Walltopia will dream up!

Between NW 14th and 15th Ave on NW Pettygrove St., we will build our largest gym: a 30,500 sq.ft.three story climbing, yoga and fitness facility. Plans include up to 60 foot high walls, top out bouldering, two beautiful yoga studios, complete fitness & cardio area and a variety of training tools for climbers including an adjustable system board and crack, and more! To compare, our largest gym in Sunnyvale is 28,400 sq.ft.
We look forward to being part of the already thriving Portland climbing community in concert with the other local gyms.
Although there are still details to hash out, and changes are likely, we want to share the good news with you! We’re still undergoing some final environmental tests and City planning review. We will build a brand new custom built building and then fill it with climbing structures. We hope to open in 2014.
