Rocktown Climbing Gym

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.

“Always a great time!!”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

Although I do not climb, my daughter has been climbing here for the past couple of years since she was 6yrs. old. I am simply along to belay for her and watch how she is so fearless. The staff here is always friendly and will bend over backwards to help you. If there is anything you need, just ask. It's a safe and fun place for kids and adults. If you're a first timer, there will be a short mandatory introduction class to make you familiar with the equipment and safety procedures. All the equipment you will need is available to rent for a small fee.

“Great break from the museums and other sites”
Reviewed 21 March 2013 via mobile

We spent a few days during spring break in OKC with my kids ages 6-12. We had visited other attractions such as the science museum, but wanted a physical activity. This was a great opportunity for that. The staff was friendly, quickly outfitted us with gear and provided a 15-minute training introduction. We were then on our own to climb. My 6-year old was a bit young, though still had fun especially on the training wall. The other kids did great and had a lot of fun. Since you have to be 14 or older to be the belayer, I couldn't climb since my wife was not along on this trip and therefore it also made it a little slower for one kid to climb at a time. We spent about 3 hours at which point everyone was tired. It was a great experience and I highly recommend it.

“New heights”
Reviewed 16 December 2012 via mobile

Once aquatinted to the silo, adventure is yours. There are over 24 tracks of fun. Appropriate for any level from beginner to expert. There's no air conditioning or heater; that being said it has extreme temps in the hotter and colder months. In the winter, the put up a fence on the outside and spray water to create ice climbing. Pretty cool for all ages.

“Great family fun, but...”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 via mobile

First off, great fun for family, date night, birthday party, etc. very well age group rounded.
Now to the nitty gritty, you must have a partner to be on the ground, so you need to bring someone who can help you, if you intend on bringing a group of kids have an adult per child or you will be giving turns and waiting the entire time.
A little costly, but definitely worth it once a year. If you wanted to go often it would break the bank for a family.
