About Us

Our facility has something for everyone, from the beginner to the hard-core climber. Our climbing wall provides nearly 4000 sq. ft. of world-class indoor rock climbing. First Ave Rocks spacious rock climbing area was specifically designed for bouldering, plus there's additional dedicated wall space for top rope climbing. First Ave Rocks provides the right equipment, training and support to ensure a great rock climbing experience.

First Ave Rocks is designed to simulate the sandstone boulders that litter the Deep South. With multiple angles peppered with thousands of complex climbing shapes, patrons can climb boulders up to 15 feet tall with 10" of plush Asana padding to soften your landings. Our boulders were built with smooth handrails at the top for those who wish to drop off. The more adventurous climbers can top out our two middle features and enjoy the view from the top out deck!
