Our mission is simple. We aim to provide the premier rock climbing experience. Whatever you seek within the rock climbing world we are committed to providing you with the very best customer service, routes, instruction and community. Located just west of DC in the heart of Northern Virginia, our Sterling location is ideal for those who live and work outside of the District (or those city dwellers who need to break out of the beltway every now and then). Its state-of-the-art design includes a lead cave with 30-foot overhangs, a bouldering stalactite and dedicated areas for instruction and parties.

I've been a member of this gym for years now and love bringing friends (especially w/ kids) here to experience climbing. The staff are nice and helpful. A great alternative for activity in the area. :-)
