Welcome to Vertical Endeavors in Warrenville, IL. Located less than 30 miles from downtown Chicago, VE is one of the largest rock climbing gyms in the Midwest. Our facility offers 18,000 sq. ft. of climbing. With bouldering areas, auto belays, top ropes, and lead climbing, Vertical Endeavors has something for everyone from first-timers to experienced climbers. There is also a pro shop stocked with the latest and greatest climbing gear and equipment.

Vertical Endeavors is perfect for group events including birthday parties, field trips, lock-ins and slumber parties, scouting events, and corporate team building events. We also offer camps throughout the year for kids ages 6-16 including week-long summer camps and winter and spring-break camps.

Vertical Endeavors also offers indoor and outdoor lessons for beginners and advanced climbers alike. Our VEGA programs (Vertical Endeavors Guided Adventures) give climbers the opportunity to get outdoors and climb on real rock. Be sure to ask one of our VEGA guides if you have questions about outdoor climbing trips or lessons.
