// Local Limelight: Keith Morris
If you’ve been a part of the Maine climbing community for a while (think before EVO!) then you’ve probably met Keith Morris, EVO Partner and the man behind the scenes holding us all together. Keith has been a part of the Maine climbing community since he moved to Maine in 2004 and became involved at Maine Rock Gym. More recently he has been doing everything from getting our HVAC systems updated to cleaning out every nook and cranny of the gym to prepare us for our reopen.
Here is a look into our history and mission through the eyes of the man who has been here through it all.
Tell us a little bit about Maine Rock Gym and how you became a part of the Maine climbing community.
How did Maine Rock Gym transition into EVO?
What are your feelings around EVO’s reopening?
Reopening after the COVID-19 lockdown is going to be the biggest challenge MRG/EVO has ever faced. The only thing we can do is make sure we do everything we can to make our facility as hygienic and inviting as possible, follow the CDC guidelines, and keep our members happy. with exceptional routes from our talented setting team.
My hope is that our members will feel safe and return to climb with us, helping a local company in these testing times.
If you see Keith around the gym, be sure to give him an elbow bump or air-five of appreciation for everything he has done for this community.
Thank you, Keith, we love ya!
