Vertical Adventures Training Center


Rock climbing provides a great foundation for problem solving, relationship building, and reaching new heights.

From our tiniest preschoolers who are just learning how to grab holds, to our competitive athletes representing Team Vertical at national championships, we aim to guide kids in building their confidence both as climbers and as individuals.

And we have a great recipe for success: start with a family-friendly facility, add a bunch of super encouraging coaches, and sprinkle with a whole lot of fun.
