Get a Workout on the Climbing Tower

Indoor rock climbing is a fun way to get a complete workout. It:

  • Boosts your cardiovascular system
  • Increases flexibility
  • Improves strength
  • Improves muscular endurance

Our 35-foot climbing tower has four sides with more than 10 climbing routes. Skill levels range from beginner to advanced climber. We change the hand- and footholds regularly to create different climbing experiences.

Climbing tower staff are certified by the Professional Climbing Instructor Association. Climbers must sign waivers before using the climbing tower for the first time. A parent or guardian’s signature is required for youth under 18 years old. Waivers must be renewed annually. Forms are available at the Health Fitness check-in desk. There is a fee for using the climbing tower. Please call (319) 768-4191 for hours and more information.
