Description 

Facility

The only indoor climbing gym in Hampton Roads, VA!The Main Wall is a 32 foot, realistically textured climbing surface featuring slabs, bulges, corners, aretes, and roofs. All walls are bolted for lead climbing, and all but the most overhanging are equipped with top ropes. Each section features several color tabbed routes, ranging from beginner to extremely advanced. The routes are changed often, so there are always new challenges.

The Rappel Tower is a great place to learn and practice the important skills of safe rappelling, top belaying, ascending, and basic self rescue. Featuring versatile overhead cable anchors, the tower is the ‘classroom’ for many of our advanced classes. An access panel in the floor allows one to practice free hanging rappels. The interior of the tower contains the Crack House, a fully textured climbing area featuring various sizes of cracks and layback flakes.

The Boulders are an excellent place to work on technique or endurance without having to get high off of the ground. Bouldering is purely about climbing without dealing with knots and ropes and harnesses. The Boulders feature a wide range of angles and terrain with lots of holds. There are color coded problems of various difficulties or you can make up your own problems. Either way you’re sure to become a better, stronger climber.

Visit our Pro Shop for all of your climbing equipment needs. The shop features harnesses, helmets, shoes, ropes, carabiners, trad gear, books, clothing, and other climbing accessories from all of the top manufacturers. Members and Active Duty Military receive a 10% discount on all equipment purchases. Ask about our special prices for government and high volume purchases.
