Started With a Dream
For two decades, Rock Haven had only existed in the minds of the founders. Ask any of the founding members’ friends or family and they’ll tell you that each one of these people have been talking about building a climbing gym for the past 15 years. In the early days, they all filled books with sketches of climbing walls and gear shops and notes of services the facility would offer. Before knowing each other, they all, separately, envisioned a place where people could challenge the limits of their minds and bodies, conquer fears, and grow within a supportive community of climbers. It wasn’t until meeting in 2018 that these dreams started to materialize.
That Became a Vision
Rock Haven remained a concept for many years until Bill, Jen, Igor, and Travis all met. They quickly discovered their shared passion for climbing, their collective dream, and mutual interest in making climbing accessible to as many people as possible. With a similar vision, the group discussed many of their intentions to enter the industry and quickly hit it off, recognizing the value in each one of their skill sets. And so, the four-person partnership began.
And Now a Reality
There have been countless hours, days and weeks of brainstorming sessions, design work, and construction to make Rock Haven a reality. Now open to the public, Rock Haven is defined by the people who truly make Rock Haven what it is today - our amazing staff and members. Rock Haven has partnered with world-famous personalities and bands to host benefit events for marginalized populations. We are fortunate to have found these people and organizations who share common goals and passions. Our list of friends and partners is long and includes bands like 2018 Grammy Award winner, Portugal.The Man (and The PTM Foundation). Additionally, the Cities of Gresham, Troutdale, and Fairview, the Native American Youth and Family Center, the Native American Rehabilitation Association, Outward Bound, Lewis & Clark, Friends of the Children, Loco por la Aventura, USA Climbing, and many many more have been exceptional to work with as we launched Rock Haven.
These partners, along with the local school districts, have helped us establish a foundation for supporting and building community by giving back to people in need and bringing climbing to those who might not otherwise be able to experience it! Thank you dearly to all our members, partners, friends and family for making Rock Haven what it is today!
Come and explore Rock Haven for yourself and feeeeeeeel all the good feels and fresh vibes as you crush some climbs!
