Rock Wall

The indoor rock wall gives climbers of all abilities the opportunity to challenge themselves and have fun in a safe environment. The indoor experience simulates outdoor rock climbing, but in a more controlled setting.

The 30-foot rock wall accommodates up to five climbers at a time and has three auto-belay devices.
