    Backcountry x Metolius Party Pit Crash Pad

    The Party Pit is a local's secret bouldering area tucked away in Backcountry's backyard, and the Backcountry x Metolius Party Pit Crash Pad is perfect for projecting all the problems in the pit. Not only a place for climbing, the Party Pit is also an excellent place to hang out and meet the local crowds, who are as friendly as they are strong. There are easy highballs, hard caves, and one particularly terrifying problem called Ring Toss. Plus, there really isn't a more beautiful bouldering area in the Wasatch Mountains to enjoy sunsets while projecting and partying.

    The approach to the Party Pit is challenging to say the least, since you have to cross a river via a fallen tree. It's no easy task considering you have the Backcountry x Metolius Party Pit Crash Pad on your back, but at least the shoulder straps and waist belt stay secure so you feel balanced as you walk across the river. When you reach the pit, the unique flap closure system covers the shoulder straps for protection from abrasion as you drag the pad across the rocky ground, and it even has carpeted corners so you can clean your shoes before attempting to scale the tiny footholds.

    A camp and bouldering staple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a stellar pad, it doesn't seem to need much breaking in, landings are soft and stable! The wrapping closure around the bottom of the pad and adjustable hooking loops open up the inside of the pad when folded for extra storage, it works perfectly for shoving all your gear and snacks in there. The pack straps aren't the best ever if you've loaded a bunch of weight inside the pad, but they're entirely comfortable on longer approaches. On top of all that, I love using this crash pad as a camp chair while sitting around the fire, and although thats not the intended use, little embers haven't seemed to damage anything.

    A camp and bouldering staple

    YES

    This pad is amazing all the way around. Especially for the price. It's a great size, weighs only about 9 pounds, and is great for those higher falls. The extra folds around the sides really come in handy for carrying shoes, water bottles, and extra items. The backpack straps are super comfy as well. All around a great crash pad to add to your collection.

    YES

    Great Addition

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Had this pad for about two weeks before I had to return it (gear closet checkout) but overall had some great initial impressions. Took it to a few of the local boulders for the first week and turned the area into a gym. It has good compression, so you're protected from higher falls. And the felt on the side makes for easy cleaning.

    It's also really easy to travel with. The waist belt gives the weight a nice distribution, and the wrap around cover is convenient when toting your shoes, chalk, speaker and any number of items along the way.

    Great little pad!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pad is awesome. It may seem thin but has saved me a couple of times from 15+ feet. The felt on the corner for cleaning your shoes is really handy but it looks like it is wearing down a little too quickly.

    Tank approved

      Been using a couple of these pads on Utah excursions with friends. Easy to carry - the hip strap and backpack straps are comfortable. Never fun to fall on a crash pad but this one certainly does the job well. No problems with durability, or even keeping it clean either. Definitely recommend.



      Remember! Safety third!!

      Light and can take a hard fall!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am loving all the features of this crash pad - I mean features are really what it is coming down to with standard products such as a pad! And Backcountry x Metolius did it! Lightweight, hip strap, a place to stash your gear while you carry the pad, a few feet swiping stations and comfortable shoulder straps. I also appreciate the size/ width of this pad, it's a perfect addition to your pebble wrestling friend outing or getting out alone to project. No brainer if you are looking for a new pad option - great price point!

      My new favorite crash pad!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I took my new Backcountry x Metolius crash pad out for a spin yesterday in New Hampshire. The hike in to the boulders was about a mile long and this pad was comfy, lightweight, and easy to carry. I love the carpeted corners; some of the areas were a bit muddy and the corners kept my shoes clean and dry. This will be my new go-to pad this summer!

      My new favorite crash pad!
