Climbing Wall

Rock climbing is an exciting and challenging route to fitness, where problem solving becomes a matter of strength, fitness and flexibility of both the mind and body. As a sport, climbing is a great equalizer between men and women, the young and the old, as the challenge it presents is unique to each person. Climbing is an excellent bonding activity of trust and responsibility, suitable for families, couples and those interested in meeting other adventurous people.

The Airport Health Club offers a full range of climbing programs to members with expert instructors, eager to make climbing both accessible and fun for you.  The Climbing Staff invites and encourages aspiring climbers of all ages and abilites to put on a harness and tie into the rope. Where you go from there is up to you, but we'll do our best to make your climbing experience a high point!

Climbing at the Airport Health Club is free for all members who have their own climbing equipment and are belay certified. Harnesses and shoes can be rented at the Service Desk.  Our youth members between 4 and 15 years old must be with a belay -certified adult (18+) to climb.
