The Climbing Wall at Northside Recreation Center is fun for everyone! Beginners and experienced climbers will find new adventures while they explore the different levels of the Climbing Wall. Over 1000 square feet of vertical surface is available to play on! From easy flat walls to steep negatives and overhangs, there is a rock to challenge every skill level.

The Wall is open and staffed for adults and youth on Family Climb Nights.  The schedule is on the A.L.L. Outdoors Family Page. Equipment and instruction are provided. Climbing instructors encourage climbers to set goals and reach for the top!  You do not have to pre-register. Just come and climb!
