Welcome to The Climbing Place

Since January 1, 1995, when we first opened our doors to the public, our 18,000 square foot climbing surface facility is the largest indoor rock climbing center in North Carolina. It offers over 40,000 climbing holds, 60 top ropes, a massive overhang area, a 300 foot gym traverse and thousands of square feet of bouldering surface as well as a top-out boulder. And, it even has a retail store to meet all your climbing and backpacking needs.

We strive to provide everyone a safe and rewarding experience in climbing whether indoors or outdoors from the beginner to the advanced. We ensure that climbing not only produces physical rewards but also challenges the climber's skills in the areas of confidence, problem solving and perseverance necessary for a successful and meaningful life. Finally, our mission at The Climbing Place is to make climbing a fun and wholesome activity for the entire family to enjoy.
