The Stronghold offers hundreds of bouldering problems to satisfy both new and avid boulderers. We set new problems every week, and our terrain includes slab, roof, overhanging and vertical terrain.

Rope Climbing

Our roped-climbing terrain includes 46-foot tall walls, hundreds of routes, and three cracks to perfect your jamming skills. We offer extensive options for both top-roping and lead climbing, and our professional setters add fresh routes every week using top-of-the-line holds and an amazing array of Blocz volumes.

The Pit

The Pit is our climbing-specific training area featuring a LED Moon Board, a Tension Board, a variety of campus boards, hangboards, and an adjustable crack machine. This training equipment will hone your grip and core strength and help you take your climbing to the next level.

Climbing Clinics

Facility Waiver

All participants (climbing, fitness or yoga) must have a signed waiver. Minors (17 years and younger) must have a waiver signed by one of their parents or their legal guardian (sorry, aunts and uncles and older siblings, you've got to have Mom and Dad do it). You can also fill it in when you come at one of our waiver terminals, but filling it out online before you come in will make your first check-in easier.
