Wild Walls Indoor Climbing Gym
Wild Walls Indoor Climbing Gym sprawls across 6,000 square feet of a historic armory building, challenging gravity-bound bodies with various climbing and bouldering structures. “People have the misconception that rock climbing is like an amusement ride,” says Todd, the general manager. Wild Walls lures exercisers from dull workouts, such as watching paint dry on dumbbells, by offering challenging routes, tricky angles, and a wide variety of top-rope and sport-lead routes. Indoor adventurers can vary sweat sessions with yoga classes.
Wild Walls also stocks portable walls that soar to 16 and 24 feet, ideal for birthday celebrants or bosses who need a way to determine which employee gets a raise. For more permanent climbing surfaces, its staffers can install traverse walls, which run horizontally, in locations such as school gyms or underground monkey-training facilities.
