Looking to try your hand at rock climbing? Then Outdoor Pursuits has you covered. Our newly constructed indoor climbing wall will provide you with an opportunity to push your comfort level in a vertical environment. Built by El Dorado Walls, this new facility features 10 rope climbing lanes, a host of climbable surfaces for dedicated bouldering, and two belay ledges used for instructional classes. Come see us and learn from our trained staff how to engage in this activity in a fun and inviting environment.
The wall will have climbing shoes, chalk bags, and harnesses for use free of charge if you don’t already have your own equipment.
