How Do I Choose a Climbing Gym?
Climbing gyms are created differently – some have different wall features such as a lead wall, a bouldering cave, and several top-rope lanes, while others are a simple indoor gym with a small number of walls. Consider your needs and climbing goals.
If you want to specialize in bouldering, choose a gym that has a large bouldering cave that is spacious and fitted with routes of various difficulty levels. If you are thinking of venturing into lead climbing, then a gym with the equipment and capabilities to support such a climb would be more suitable.
Pro tip for advanced climbers: look out for varied features, holds, and textures on the wall. Features like overhangs, slopes, and chimneys provide a more challenging climb.
