The indoor climbing wall is an Entre-Prises Imprint wall with over 1500 square feet of climbing surface. The wall stands at 11 meters high and is 13 meters wide, containing both top-rope routes and bouldering problems for climbers of all skill levels. The wall leans out creating an overhang in many areas, which adds a challenge as it requires you to develop arm strength and technique in order to master some of the more difficult routes. Our climbing routes are set and rated by our highly qualified staff using the Yosemite Decimal System. Routes and boulder problems are marked with colored tape to guide you through the problem. Although you are not required to follow the set routes, they are there to provide a challenge for those who seek one. Currently, the easiest route on our wall is a 5.6, while the easiest bouldering problem is a VB (beginner). As you get used to climbing you may choose to follow more challenging routes or problems to build your skills and strength.
