Great climbing gym. Brought my daughter here on Sunday. Very diverse walls. Lots of easy climbs..to some super advanced ones. Staff was very cool..super helpful. I will be back.
Down-to-Earth environment with a fun, friendly atmosphere. The setting is top notch with technical bouldering problems to well-set lead climbing and much more including great music selection and even live music sets! Skip the large, corporate feel of a super-gym and come back to the community feel of a true climbing gym and legend in the community with over 20 enjoyable years in business!
I was incredibly spoiled to have gone to Vertical Hold as my first adult rock-climbing experience. Too bad this is all the way in San Diego, but those of you who live down there are lucky to have a facility as good as VH. The sheer size of this place is enough for a great rating, but the top-roping climbs are challenging and fun, and really get you thinking about where to place your feet and hands. This facility has atc belay, so learning proper belay technique is a must. Staff is very helpful at this location, and takes the full 20 minutes to instruct without becoming distracted, which is pretty important when you’re learning to keep the other person alive. Women’s bathrooms have hair ties and lotion. WHAT. Monthly memberships, one-time charge, or punch cards allowed.
