Experts and beginners alike clamber across a 6,000-square-foot expanse of rocky terrain at Niagara Climbing Center. A stocking stuffer for vertical explorers, the introductory lesson covers scaling basics and techniques for overcoming fears of rope. Harnessed climbers dangle from one of 40 stations, hoisted 20 feet above the ground with taut cords. Fingers lock around colorful holds sprinkled across vertical walls or more advanced cliff faces that mimic outdoor crags with bulges, gravity-testing tilts, and the disapproving glare of Thomas Jefferson. In-house route setters carve out lengthy journeys in the spacious gym, with exercises designed to sharpen specific techniques and boost endurance for future mountain expeditions.
Niagara Climbing Center
After spending hours on the faces of outdoor boulders and overhangs, the crew at Niagara Climbing Center brings back inspiration as a souvenir. With toughened fingers and memories of these natural rock formations, they return to their indoor facility to lay climbing routes on 6,000 square feet of vertical terrain. The gym's walls reach up to 20 feet above the ground and their features include bulges and slopes to help climbers prepare for real rocks or real trophy rooms of big-game rock hunters.
