Rocktown Climbing Gym
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Rocktown Climbing Gym is the ultimate rock climbing destination in Oklahoma City. Featuring indoor and outdoor top rope and lead climbs up to 110 feet, bouldering, auto belays, and instruction. The "grain silo" structure and repurposing of the facility has led Rocktown to be named one of the most unique rock gyms in the United States. We cater not only to the die-hard expert climber but to families and those of all abilities seeking adventure. Rocktown Climbing Gym is a social enterprise with Rocktown Youth Mentoring, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. "RYM" serves youth by cultivating character through mentoring and adventure. At-risk youth participate at no cost. Every time you climb at Rocktown Gym, you are directly contributing to a program that speaks into the lives of the youth in our community. Your patronage helps to fund Rocktown Youth Mentoring, as Rocktown's fee based services will help RYM achieve its goal of becoming a self-sustaining nonprofit organization. Rocktown Climbing Gym possesses some of the tallest climbing gym routes in the United States. We are housed in a grain elevator with climbs up to 90 feet tall and 140 in total length. We have over 65 routes inside the silos including a finger crack, hand crack, chimney route, a route that finishes on the ceiling (100 ft off the ground), multi pitch routes, 13 outside routes, and two bouldering walls Including a 60-degree bouldering wall. We also currently have 5 auto belay systems that allow a climber to climb routes without needing a partner. Our routes vary in difficulty to allow the beginning climber to expert climber find something to challenge them.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

First when you arrive, you have to take a 15 minute practice class if it is your first time. If you are 14 or older you can learn how to harness the climber. I would recommend it for a 10+ age range. There are 6 rooms and there is an additional fee for boulder climbing. The yellow room and the room on your second left are the easiest. This is a lot of fun, but very challenging and physically demanding. You should spend at least 2 hours climbing, and the prices are very reasonable.

“Wish this gym was in our town!”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

My husband and daughters (age 10 and 12) spent several hours at this climbing gym. They did the introductory package which included all gear and a class on belaying. They had an "awesome" time and if it weren't 12 hours away we'd make it a weekly event.

“First time, no problem.”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

That's what they told us and they were right. We had an instructor be thourough in making sure that we knew what we were doing and how to figure out what our limitations were. (How to find the sissy routes). What a blast! By the end of our visit, I had a smile on my face and my arms, wrists and fingers were jello. Great fun.
