Triangle Rock Club, the Morrisville-based rock climbing facility with locations in Morrisville, North Raleigh and Fayetteville, has been named the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year.

The business was one of seven finalists around the country in the running for the award, which includes a $10,000 cash prize, given at the America’s Small Business Summit being held in Washington, D.C. this week.

Andrew Kratz and Luis Jauregui started Triangle Rock Club in 2007. Joel Graybeal, a former banker who met the other two owners while taking a gym class, became managing partner in 2011.
