Rock Climbing in Steamboat Springs

We’re outdoor junkies here in Steamboat. And rock climbing is just another adrenalin sport we can enjoy year-round here in Steamboat Springs. Thanks to Matt Tredway who is responsible for the indoor climbing wall in the Steamboat Springs Middle School, and  Patrick Meyer, Owner of Rocky Mountain Ventures, the general public can climb indoors 3 times a week.

The climbing is great. There are 4 Trublue auto belay devices. There are several routes but it’s not a huge climbing wall. Ratings are from about 5.5 – 5.11. There are many bolted holds but also a lot of natural holds to make things harder and even a few nice cracks to work. There’s not much lead climbing but there are 4 bolts to practice a lead climb. The rock feels and looks real and it’s never that crowded so you get plenty of climbing time.
