Coated in precarious handholds and scaling climbers, the walls of Slidell Rocks Climbing Gym pose top-roping, lead-climbing, and bouldering challenges suited for rock-jockeys of all skill levels. Strap on a harness and dangle from one of 16 top ropes affixed to geometric crags nearly 40 feet high, replete with overhangs and angled climbs. Forty-five-degree walls and seven hangboards challenge low-altitude scalers in the bouldering training room, which opens up into the bouldering cave where visitors can get in touch with their inner stalactite as they climb to the beat of music and bask in air-conditioned air. Slidell Rocks Climbing Gym cushions climbers with flooring made of custom wall-to-wall crash pads.
