About the Climbing Wall

Discover the challenge, fun and excitement of rock-climbing. Our Nicros ART Wall has a custom-made climbing surface that closely duplicates the look and feel of natural rock. It provides the very best terrain for both beginners and expert climbers. Our wall offers dihedrals, aretes, endurance routes, a sustained 10- to 15-degree overhang, and much more. Anyone can climb. Come on, give it a try! wall1a
