The Stronghold Climbing Gym
The Stronghold Climbing Gym is all about options—and, of course, climbing. The gym offers a slew of things to do, ranging from roped climbing, bouldering, yoga, full fitness, a cardio area, and kids programs. Climbing programs cater to both beginners and hardcore enthusiasts with hundreds of possible routes on walls that reach up to 45 feet. For example, the intro to climbing class teaches beginners to climb safely with a top-rope, and the lead climbing class teaches more advanced climbers how to climb and belay on the "sharp end" of the rope. Fitness-focused classes and yoga keep physiques limber, strong, and lean, while other fun activities such as the popular lights-out night bring the Stronghold community together. The gym's welcoming atmosphere and diverse range of programs have even been featured in The Los Angeles Times, Univision, and LA Magazine. Classes are available for ages 14 and up.
