Owner description: Rocktown Climbing Gym is the ultimate rock climbing destination in Oklahoma City. Featuring indoor and outdoor top rope and lead climbs up to 110 feet, bouldering, auto belays, and instruction. The "grain silo" structure and repurposing of the facility has led Rocktown to be named one of the most unique rock gyms in the United States. We cater not only to the die-hard expert climber but to families and those of all abilities seeking adventure. Rocktown Climbing Gym is a social enterprise with Rocktown Youth Mentoring, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. "RYM" serves youth by cultivating character through mentoring and adventure. At-risk youth participate at no cost. Every time you climb at Rocktown Gym, you are directly contributing to a program that speaks into the lives of the youth in our community. Your patronage helps to fund Rocktown Youth Mentoring, as Rocktown's fee based services will help RYM achieve its goal of becoming a self-sustaining nonprofit organization. Rocktown Climbing Gym possesses some of the tallest climbing gym routes in the United States. We are housed in a grain elevator with climbs up to 90 feet tall and 140 in total length. We have over 65 routes inside the silos including a finger crack, hand crack, chimney route, a route that finishes on the ceiling (100 ft off the ground), multi pitch routes, 13 outside routes, and two bouldering walls Including a 60-degree bouldering wall. We also currently have 5 auto belay systems that allow a climber to climb routes without needing a partner. Our routes vary in difficulty to allow the beginning climber to expert climber find something to challenge them.

“Interesting and different place to climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The climbing gym are old silos with routes both inside and outside. If you have never been climbing the staff will give you a lesson in how to climb and how to belay and then you are off! Gear rental is available too.
Beware that there is no climate control so if it's really hot outside, it's probably really hot inside and same for the cold.

“Great work out and unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

My 16 year-old and I went climbing for a few hours. The staff was friendly and informative. A clean, safe environment with a variety of climbs. I love the aspect on climbing inside and outside a retired silo. A great experience!

“Great Indoor Fun and Exercise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

A neat place to try your skills at rock climbing. For all skill levels, including those lacking, you won't fell like an outsider. They have all the gear for you and your family. Rock climbing in a grain elevator near Bricktown - only in OKC!

“Always a great time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Although I do not climb, my daughter has been climbing here for the past couple of years since she was 6yrs. old. I am simply along to belay for her and watch how she is so fearless. The staff here is always friendly and will bend over backwards to help you. If there is anything you need, just ask. It's a safe and fun place for kids and adults. If you're a first timer, there will be a short mandatory introduction class to make you familiar with the equipment and safety procedures. All the equipment you will need is available to rent for a small fee.
