Vail’s only indoor climbing wall

The Vitality Center has Vail’s only indoor climbing wall allowing both new and experienced climbers access to great climbing year-round. We offer programs for kids and adults of all ages and abilities, and have equipment available. Climbing is a fun and challenging experience, which can strengthen your workout program by forcing you to deal with physical challenges that require mental solutions. Climbing demands participants to depend upon one another, and put problem-solving skills to use. Our instructors are highly qualified and motivated professionals who are dedicated to sharing their love for the sport. We have drills, workout programs, and games that build and develop strength and technique. Private lessons are available by appointment.
