Come enjoy some of the best indoor climbing in the upstate. Our experienced route setters always keep things fun and interesting, and our staff is always available to help.
Conservation and Climbing
On November 16 at 7:00PM, come on out to Black Dome in Asheville to learn how climbers can mitigate their impact, learn about rare species that thrive in our region, and see the latest access projects.
Climbing Team Every Thursday
We had a great time with all of our climbing team members at the climbing team kickoff. We look forwards to seeing our younger climbers at 6:00pm and advanced team at 7:00 every Thursday!
Tuesday Climbing Meetup
Every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm, come and climb with us! All skill levels are welcome. If you've never climbed before, we'd be glad to meet you and show you the ropes. If you've always wanted to climb outdoors, this is where to start! If you just want to get a good workout, we'll be here to cheer you on!
Or tomorrow if it's a Sunday :)
Are you looking for a healthy, challenging, and invigorating activity to keep fit this year. Climbing is a great physical and mental exercise that's not only a great full-body workout, it's fun! Give it a try and you'll be hooked.
Date: Thursday, November 16 from 7–8:30PM
Location: Black Dome Mountain Sports
Hosted by: Conserving Carolina and Carolina Climbers Coalition
Join conservation scientist JJ Apodaca, the Carolina Climbers Coalition (CCC), and Conserving Carolina in learning how climbing and conservation are linked. Conserving Carolina and the CCC have partnered on several public recreation access initiatives in Hickory Nut Gorge. They will discuss exciting projects that have recently expanded climbing access in the area.
Ecologist and CCC Board Member Laura Boggess will join Dr. Apodaca to present on the uniqueness of our local cliff ecosystems. They will also describe ways in which climbers can identify rare species and minimize habitat disturbance, further supporting conservation and access to more protected lands.
We are open today from 10am to 10pm.
Payment for full gym access or bouldering gives you access to the gym all day.
Bouldering can be done in the gym in designated bouldering areas and anywhere else in the gym up to a safe height. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses. Most bouldering climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls.
The belayer is the person who holds the other end of the rope to keep the climber from falling. If you have not reserved the gym for a group but still need belay service, one of our trained staff members will be able to belay at a rate of $15 per hour.
All first time climbers are required to go through a belay safety check with one of our trained staff members. The first time user fee includes the cost of the belay safety check, full gym access for the entire day, and all of the recommended gear (including shoes, a harness, and chalk).
