Description

The beta photos describe the natural features built into the wall. I think they will be a good alternative to the route descriptions. The purpose of the descriptions is not to hype the routes more than warranted, but to provide info to climbers who climb during unstaffed hours, or when no staff members with knowledge of the routes are available.
__________________________________________________________________
The wall is located within the Glenwod Springs Rec Center. It was constructed by Monolithic Sculptures ( monosculpt.com/index.php ), the same company that designed the Spot Gym among others. The wall is a natural rock construction and climbs brilliantly on the permanent natural features ranging from 5.10-5.14? and V0-V6+. The wall also has T-nuts for screw on holds for a change of set routes in addition to the natural terrain. The wall is top rope equipped with auto belays and ropes and bouldering is allowed to feet-to-head-height. New routes are usually put up weekly.

BELAY CERTIFIED CLIMBERS with their own equipment are allowed to climb any time except during climbing classes (usually Wed. 5:00pm-6:15pm). Come in during staffed hours for a belay certification or belay lesson. Belay lessons and certifications are FREE of charge. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE PROPER MODERN TECHNIQUE IN THE USE OF PROPER EQUIPMENT TO PASS YOUR Certification. (If it has been a while or never since you have had formal training see this article we can catch you up.)

We provide all equipment free of charge during staffed hours(harnesses, shoes, chalk, belay devices, and helmets (usual for outdoor trips)). We carry climbing shoes from Kids 11 to adult size 13.5. There is no additional fee for the use of the wall. CLIMBERS 4-6 YEARS OLD MUST HAVE A BELAY CERTIFIED PARENT TO SUPERVISE.

The daily drop in fees are as follows:

Passes include use of the shower, pool, water and floor aerobics, climbing wall, public skating (Ice: November - March/Roller other times), tennis (without reservations), gymnasium, ongoing fitness classes and fitness center.

Routes

Our gym has real rock construction and these are all permanent features. It is designed to look and climb like rock. The routes shown in the photos are sculpted into the wall, like the crack at Rock'n Jamin, but more realistic. We have bolt on holds in addition to those features, but these routes climb only built-in sculpted features. Please check out the wall designer/manufacturers website to get a look at their construction: http://monosculpt.com/cw.php

Don't forget about the SWEEET waterslide in the heated indoor pool. That's the real attraction for climbers (shower included). Sep 29, 2009

Quit yer moanin', this is a huge boon for the Crystal River Valley. Previously there was only a crappy little wall at CMC a little ways out of town. There are a lot of climbers who I'm sure really appreciate knowing there is an indoor option for cold/snowy/rainy days over there. Sep 28, 2009

I'm travelling cross country this winter to project that 4 star .12d fake crack. Sep 24, 2009

Agreed. This is more of a solicitation and doesn't seem suitable for the site, much less the route database. The jokes on me if this place doesn't exist...there was a similar post a while back that was pretty good sarcasm. Sep 24, 2009
You gotta be kidding me. Why would you post gym routes on here? I can see posting the gym info but plastic routes do not belong here. The moderator should take them down now - Please!! Sep 24, 2009
