About Us

Experience the vertical world of climbing as never before. Indoors at the Phoenix Rock Gym. Explore our thirty foot high walls with over 15,000 sq. ft. of climbing surface. No experience is necessary. Even if you've never touched a rope in your life we will teach you the skills needed to climb safely.

All you need is your sense of adventure! If you already have your own climbing gear, bring it, otherwise rentals are available.

The ropes are already hanging so all you need to do is tie-in and climb. Our large, 2-level bouldering area is great for warm-ups and warm-downs or entire work-outs. We have 56 top-ropes with everything from easy cruisin' routes to overhanging arm blasters. Faces, cracks, aretes, chimneys and more! The Phoenix Rock Gym offers you a place to have fun while improving your climbing skills and increasing your strength. The routes are changed frequently so you'll always find something new to test your skills.

The Phoenix Rock Gym is the place to climb. We've got the environment, equipment, and the expertise to get you climbing. So, no matter what your age or experience, come on over and enjoy the thrill, excitement, and challenge of climbing! You have to see it to believe it.
