A certified staff member mans the ropes for climbers of all skill levels as they tackle one of more than 140 top-rope routes throughout the gym during the one-hour climbing experience. Alternatively, climbers can eschew ropes and harnesses for a stint on the smaller bouldering walls, where a wrong move leads to a tumble on soft mats on the floor. Gear such as chalk and climbing shoes are included in both options.
In 1987, indoor climbing was as unpopular in the Seattle area as breeding labradoodles. But Vertical World––a pioneer indoor climbing gym––introduced the city to the up-and-coming sport of rock climbing in a controlled environment. Since its inception, the gym has expanded to three other locations in Everett, Tacoma, and Redmond, the latter hosting eastside climbers for more than 20 years.
A team of experienced route creators challenges climbers with more than 200 bouldering, lead, or top-rope routes in a wide variety of difficulty levels. The gym hosts competitive youth teams that have gone on to national or world tournaments. The gym's staff of climbers and guides also leads outdoor excursions that build confidence and teach novices how to identify a rock wall in the wild.
The staff is pretty friendly, and the people who come here are pretty cool too.Maple C., Yelp, 3/11/10
