Grimes Location: 3605 Miehe Drive, Grimes, IA

History: We opened this location 10 years ago back in 2008, making it Iowa’s first commercial climbing and largest climbing facility in the state. It was founded by Diane & Gary Bridgewater, bringing on now co-owner Aaron Stevens on as a general manager. Now 10 years later, we have offered climbing to over 110,000 different customers and as of 2019 added a bouldering only gym to downtown Des Moines.

Description: Our Grimes facility has over 10,000 sq feet of climbing space, 200 routes and boulder problems, a workout area and yoga studio. We offer auto belays, bouldering, top rope, and lead climbing.

Our favorite part of our gym has been the amazing community of members it has fostered. They make the gym what it is.

Downtown Des Moines Location: 150 East 4th Steet, Des Moines, IA

History: After having our Grimes facility for 10 years, in January of 2019 we opened up a bouldering gym in our downtown. It is focused more heavily on training and with its location is perfect for the young business professional and college students in the area.

Description: Our East Village location has 3,000 sq feet of climbing and 1,000 sq feet of training space. Walls range from 14-16 feet.

The gym is still very new, but for us what we love about the gym is that it is the embodiment of how we have created a strong climbing community in Iowa over the past 10 years.
