Rocky Top opened as CharlottesvilleĀ’s first climbing gym. With a weight room, an exercise room, and a racquetball court Rocky Top has fun for everyone. The racquetball court is also the scene of vigorous games of Wallyball, a scaled-down version of Volleyball.
Rocky Top is the place to go for fun, flexibility, and a family-friendly atmosphere. We provide climbing and fitness in Charlottesville's only public climbing gym. We have 2500 square feet of climbing and bouldering along with challenging routes that are changed weekly. New state-of-the-art holds and volumes add complexity and dimension to our climbing wall. We offer instruction and rent the equipment you will need for a great climbing experience.

Come join us for fun, exercise, and comradery!

Monday - Friday: 3pm to 9pm
Saturday & Sunday: 11am to 7pm

We're happy to open in off hours for parties or groups - contact us for more information.

Can your courage overcome your fear? It is not about physical strength but footwork, positioning, and technique. Anyone can learn to climb. If you're interested in learning or perfecting your climbing skills, this is the place for you.

Rocky Top's climbing walls have routes for the beginner and ones that will challenge the expert climber. We welcome first-time climbers, groups, birthday parties and we offer rental harnesses and climbing shoes.
