City Rock - Indoor Rock Climbing

Indoor climbing is a fun way of exercising in a safe and vibrant environment. Climbing is not about sitting on a treadmill for what feels like hours – each climb is different and will challenge you every time both physically and mentally. Our climbing facilities include a large bouldering area (bouldering is climbing 3-4m high without a rope) and high walls for roped climbing. We cater to many different audiences – from first-time kids to experienced outdoor climbers, and everyone in between.
