Climb Time Indy surrounds rock climbers with challenges—ranging from very easy to extremely difficult—that create opportunities for improvement, learning, and fun. More than 4,000 holds lie scattered over a climbing surface that spans more than 8,500 square feet, brimming with routes that are scrapped and rebuilt weekly to yield new challenges for both climbers and connect-the-dot enthusiasts. The staff checks all equipment weekly to ensure safety, routinely washing or replacing holds and completely overhauling the facilities every 6–12 weeks. Purchasers may split packages up among individuals or across multiple visits, and climbers are free to come and go throughout the day to grab lunch or to test their new skills while rescuing kittens stuck atop the world’s largest bowling pin.
Climb Time Indy
A climber dangles from his belay rope, punching his fists into the air victoriously after reaching the top of the wall. At Climb Time Indy, more than 8,500 square feet of indoor climbing space host 4,000 different holds, giving the walls the colorful appearance of the bench where giants dispose of unwanted chewing gum. The climbing routes are changed regularly by meticulous and experienced climbers, granting regulars new challenges every week. Kids can join in the fun and learn the ropes with coaching during weekly club meetings; private lessons help more mature scalers brush up on skills.
