Best Rock Climbing Venue

Vertical Ventures

Share on Nextdoor

The 6,000-square-foot warehouse near Sligh Avenue houses dozens of climbing routes, a bouldering cave and a rappelling wall. Opened 10 years ago, Vertical Ventures is the Bay area’s first and only indoor rock climbing gym — and because Florida’s pancake-like topography lacks natural outdoor challenges, VV is a boon to climbers, extreme sports enthusiasts and adventurers. You can get your fill of climbing six days a week; an entire day is $11 on weekdays and $12.50 on weekends; students can check it out for half price on Tuesdays and ladies for half off on Wednesdays.
