Iowa has many indoor climbing walls. Some are open to the public and others are private. Some require membership, or a daily use fee, and may ask you to read and sign a waiver. Other indoor facilities are very informal and by invitation only. These are typically smaller in size and protected with bouldering pads and excellent attentive spotting.
Please include directions to your indoor climbing facility on the AREA you define.
