The Rock Lounge is owned by local legend Marcus Garcia. Marcus has been a leading climber and route developer in the Durango area for nearly 20 years. His contributions to the local climbing community have been vast, establishing mega classics such as; "Valhalla" 5.12d, "The Corrections" 5.13 and many more.  In 2014, he bought The Rock Lounge and has since transformed it into a hub for hard core training and a place for local climbers to come together and share their passion for the sport. Marcus is no absentee owner, as the head coach and route setter he logs more gym time than just about anyone. Since closing the doors at the old location in May of 2017, Marcus has been diligently working with the city to open the new location. After nearly a year of being closed, The Rock Lounge is ready to open the doors on phase one of his dream. The next phase will include the addition of sport climbing and space for additional training opportunities such as yoga.
